Oxford Brookes History Lecturer guest blogs for 'The Independent'

Wednesday, 23 November 2011


Dr Glen O'Hara, Reader in the History of Public Policy at Oxford Brookes, has this week guest blogged for 'The Independent'. In his contribution to the newspaper's online content, Dr O'Hara argues that European governments face a monetary, demographic and political crisis - and definitely not a sovereign debt crisis. Their remedies - to cut, and cut, and cut again - may therefore be totally misguided. The blog can be found at: http://blogs.independent.co.uk/2011/11/22/austerity-is-not-the-solution-to-the-great-recession/ Dr O'Hara has also recently been a guest blogger for the Voluntary Action History Society - see his thoughts on the Big Society at http://www.vahs.org.uk/2011/10/big-society-ohara/.
