BBC Two season investigates the world of money, profit and regulation
The Party's Over
Robert charts the parallel lives of families in Britain and in the new superpower economies, interviewing politicians, bankers and economists around the world, to expose the realities of our economic predicament.
The first programme shows how the consumer boom in the West was an illusion fuelled by cheap credit and the huge deflationary effect of cheap goods made in China.
The second film looks to the future, asking whether China and other developing economies are taking the lead in the so-called knowledge economy, previously dominated by the West, and investigates what we can do to compete.
Robert brings home to the audience the implications of a crisis that has been brewing for decades.
