Joe Higgins (Socialist Party TD, 1997-2007) debates against Ulrick McEvaddy (Businessman) [and Pat Kenny] about the Economic Crisis

A 40 minute debate between Joe Higgins, Socialist Party rep & TD form 1997 to 2007 and businessman Ulrick McEvaddy on the Pat Kenny Show on Thursday 19th February about the economic crisis, who is to blame and how can it be solved, is available on RTE: http://www.rte.ie/news/2009/0219/rteieextraaudio_av.htm...l,209

The debate deals with issues such as Anglo Irish (where Ulrick commends the golden circle as great men), the banking crisis (where Joe outlines the need for socialist nationalisation of the banks), the pension levy, SR Technics, Aer Lingus and more. It will be of great interest to readers on Indymedia, as an introduction to the socialist alternative to the economic crisis.
