This interview with Dr. Benjamin Barber, was recorded in late 2008, in the immediate aftermath of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, an event which many attribute to the continuing global economic malaise. Dr. Barber identified a Democratic Deficit as contributing to a spreading lack of TRUST in and between Governments, Business, Institutions and Citizens. He predicted that unless this issue was addressed it would lead to a widening disconnect between Governments and Governed.
With David Cameron blaming everyone but himself for the recent disturbances across the UK, listen to Dr. Barber and decide who you TRUST. And like the Titanic, see how much heed was paid to the warning signals.
