With the economy tanking, the pound plummeting to an all-time low and a fresh round of austerity coming down the tracks many of us are asking “what the hell is going on with the economy?” Join Bristol Transformed, two speakers from Reteaching Economics, and other concerned Bristolians to talk it through and figure out what comes next.
Bristol Transformed are very pleased to have the wonderful Owen Hatherley back in Bristol for a chat and Q+A to launch his new book, Artificial Islands: Adventures in the Dominions. Great Britain has just left one Union. But might the island’s future lie in another Union altogether, with its former colonial “kith and kin” in a trans-oceanic super-state with Canada, Australia and New Zealand? Welcome to the strange world of the “CANZUK Union”, the name for a quixotic but apparently serious plan to reunify the white-majority “Dominions” of the British Empire under the flag of low taxes, strong borders and climate change denialism.
