Vince reviewed on tonight’s BBC2 Newsnight

A quick plug for a quick plug – in this week’s Newsnight Review (BBC2, 11pm Friday 27th March, and online), Kirsty Wark and the panel will be discussing Vince Cable’s book, The Storm: the world economic crisis and what it means:

Vince Cable’s book The Storm is one of many pieces of non-fiction about to be published which attempt to explain the roots of this economic crisis.

The Lib Dem Treasury spokesman has been called the “sage” of the credit crunch.

He warned years ago about the over-heating housing market, and advocated the nationalisation of Northern Rock months before the government did it.

The Storm is his take on how we got here, and how we can get out of it.

The Storm by Vince Cable is published by Atlantic Books on Wednesday, 1 April, 2009.
