    Default PW Video Channel - Economics Playlist - Argentina's Economic Crisis and Default

    Andrew49 is putting shape onto the Political World Video Channel and is co-editing it

    I've just added an economics playlist: the main item in it is a documentary on the crisis in Argentina. Argentina has experienced boom, crash and default.

    This one here is from 1998
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a37sRjkLtWw"]YouTube - Collapse of Irish Economy Predicted in 1998 RTE TV[/ame]


    This one is from March 2008 - before the bank guarantee:
    Brian Lehrer speaks with David McWilliams, author of The Pope's Children: The Irish Economic Triumph and the Rise of Ireland's New Elite, on the dramatic overhaul of the Irish economy.

    I've added some short videos on the IMF and Jamaica and Iceland to the PW Video channel

    Also some video of the Student demonstration.

    Please post any links for suggested videos here and Andrew49 or myself will add them to the channel.

    The Channel is linked via the top navbar or here - http://www.youtube.com/user/politica...ature=mhum#p/p

    This is a great documentary on the Brukman factory occupation, where the bosses fled around the time of the default then came back seeking to retake the factory after the workers had taken over production and management for themselves: this is an inspiring film and the answer to every one who says that co-operative production won't work.

    Just a 2 minute taste of it here. The bosses left, in the economic crash, without paying them - they took over the factory and ran it - the police tried to take it back - the women got support and took it back.
