HOP 91. Dialogues Concerning the Banking Crisis

Alistair Darling

2011

Alistair Darling’s views on the banking crisis, the economic problems that ensued and their implications; including a Scottish perspective. As the Chancellor of the Exchequer at the time of the crisis, he is ideally placed to provide an informed view. Given that we are now at some distance from the immediacy of the crisis, and it is a year since Mr Darling remitted office, the time is right for him to provide a considered view of events and their implications – for Scotland in particular – and the way forward.
