About this book
Two leading journalists explain how and why Britain has fallen into decline, and what is required for the state to survive in the new world order. This is a highly topical subject that is becoming more pressing, as the economic outlook for the UK worsens and fears of a second global financial crisis increase. The authors are Economics Editors of "Mail On Sunday" and "Guardian" respectively.
With a second recession looming, Britain is facing a moment of truth. This book examines how the leader of the industrial revolution came to exhibit the features of a 'developing country'; chronic debt, volatile growth and vulnerability to external events. Going South explains how this has happened, arguing that the time for quick fixes is over.
