  • A report by Paul Mason into the economic situation in Britain in 2010, following the banking crisis of 2008. Following on from a report looking at all the problems Britain faces, Paul travels to St Davids in Wales where he meets a group of businessmen running medium-sized businesses in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. He travels to Stoke on Trent to see if new approaches to business can work in this industrial town. Emma Bridgewater, who runs her own successful pottery in Stoke, explains her approach - employing local people, using traditional processes and good design. Paul compares this to the way the financial sector does business - concerned about keeping costs down and out-sourcing to cheaper parts of the world. The report ends in Margate, meeting artist Tracey Emin who says art can help with urban regeneration.
