This month's Living Marxism focuses on the continuing crisis in the
economy - and its dire consequences for working people.
We ask Britain's economics experts how they see the prospects for recovery.
And our own experts explain why they don't see the slump coming to an end.
We also go beyond the debate about statistics, to look at the human cost
of the capitalist slump which is being borne by millions. Mass unemployment
is one consequence; we examine how it is now being blamed on the jobless
themselves. Welfare spending cuts are another; we show how the cuts are
being disguised by such policies as 'Care in the Community' and the Child
Finally we reveal some links between the slump in the economy and the dangerous
rise of militarism. It seems like the sound of gunfire is the only boom
we can expect for the foreseeable future.
