Why then, is Missmarketcrash obsessing over David Attenborough this morning? Well, imagine if the Financial Times had a television feature about the current state of world economics....it would be most wonderous to have David Attenborough channelling Willem Buiter to discuss the state we are in, and, where we might be going. No matter what he said, he would place a warm cup of tea in our hands and goodness would descend. His naturalist perspective would be a fitting sidekick for discussing economics.
Attenborough's upcoming broadcast beginning 11th of February is entitled "Nature's Great Events". There are six episodes:
1. The Great Melt
2. The Great Salmon Run
3. The Great Migration
4. The Great Tide
5. The Great Flood
6. The Great Feast
There is, or could be, a clear parallel here to the goings on in the economic world...a nimble leap of topic is all it would take...
