I have written a Saturday column for the FT about the UK economic downturn. I happen to be in London at the moment to witness it. You can read the column here and comment below.

Incidentally, I start the piece with an anecdote from Margaret Drabble’s The Ice Age, a novel I have always liked, which takes place in the aftermath of the 1974 property crash. In this context, I have a story to relate.
