Bookshop Barnie with Evan Davis - Made in Britain: How the Nation Earns its Living

Wednesday 4th January 2012 6pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

Made in Britain is an optimistic state-of-the-nation book. In it, Evan Davis argues that we shouldn't worry so much about UK's decline... but then again, the book was published 6 months ago!
Come along and hear Evan Davis explain why we should whistle while we work.
Questions to consider:
- Is Britain in terminal decline and China on an unstoppable rise?
- If Britain's economy needs 'rebalancing', is it because it is on the edge of a precipice?
- Why does Britain - one of the richest nations in the world (the sixth-largest manufacturing nation in the world in 2008) - seem so depressed?
