It's Friday Night! Party Time! Time to relax, put your feet up on the couch, lay back, and watch some detailed videos on economic policy!
The BBC produced the below 2011 economic documentary, The Party’s Over: How the West Went Bust. Business editor Robert Pest goes through the U.K. financial and economic history of the last 30 years and concludes, surprise, much of it was illusionary and really kind of stupid. Enjoy.
The focus is on Britain and the loss of their manufacturing base, opting for financialization and a consumer society. Sound familiar?
The Party’s Over: How the West Went Bust
There are two episodes 1 hour each, the video should play through to the second.
