Re: What are some entertaining, even amusing, political deba
Posted 08 October 2010
I have been organising a talk on Monday 25 October at Shakespeare & Co – with two young British journalists talking about the ‘jilted generation’. The phrase refers to a British phenomenon of how the younger generation are being strangled by short-term political and financial thinking - where they are being squeezed by increased student fees, house prices and rising taxes in a way their parents’ generation never were. Their ideas have received significant press here in Britain and given the global recession the issues are going to be transported to Paris – where the authors will talk about their research, how their book can and should define the movement of a generation and answer questions on what the young can do to help themselves.
There are more details are on the Shakespeare and Co website and on the Jilted Generation website - just search for it in google. Oh and they have written a book about it which they are giving away as a free download to mobile phone users which you can find out about on the website.
Hopefully see some of you there - I'll be there too.
