Is our economic crisis caused by stupidity, greed, political muppetry, ideological conflict, institutional failure, or merely inevitable within Capitalism? Are Euro Zone governments prevented by bankers and others from restoring jobs and economic growth? Is the crisis destroying the EU? It excites every political bandwagon and gimcrack theory. The public is betrayed, exploited and confused. The drama contains unsavoury characters. McDowell advised many of them. Is he personally to blame for it all? His economists have a model of the world economy. They predicted disaster. How useful was that? He says he’ll answer any questions definitively, clearly, honestly. Oh, yeah?
