Ha-Joon Chang in the Guardian: UK is Sunk.

I was just reading something written by Chang in the 1990s about the Developmental State and here he is 20 years later commenting on the ConDems and the UK government in general simply not getting it.

In reality, though, the coalition government isn’t as stupid or stubborn as it appears. It is sticking to its plan A because spending cuts are not about deficits but about rolling back the welfare state. So no amount of evidence is going to change its position on cuts.
