We've got a terrible economic situation and it’s getting worse. But why is this? And what will it mean for, say, the UK's jobs market, industry, education, and society as a whole?
My prognosis is that the economic situation will lead to an even greater scarcity of jobs in the future as the debt game trundles on. We'll see more social division, patriotism and nationalism emerge as individuals - in this case, British citizens - move toward a protectionist mentality, perceiving that they have more of a 'right' to take a job above non-British citizens.
