In the first of a new series, the award-winning BBC's Economics Editor, Stephanie Flanders, discusses with leading economists what will pull Britain out of recession and restore the economy to growth. In the 1930s, after the Great Depression, Britain recovered first through a housing boom in the private sector and then through rearming for a world war. Eighty years on, what is going to do the trick this time?

Among those joining Stephanie are the leading economic historian, Nicholas Crafts; Kate Barker, the expert on housing and planning and former member of the Bank of England's monetary policy committee; and Oxford University economist, Dieter Helm.
