Episode 44 - The Death of the High Street
Mark Thompson and Emma Burnell discuss recent events in politics in the all new revived House of Comments podcast. This week they discuss the future of the economy in the context of the recently announced high street troubles for HMV, Jessops, Blockbuster and before them Comet and others. How will our country and its workforce adjust to the new realities and can the state plan for this future or should we just go with the flow? You won't be surprised to hear that Mark and Emma have somewhat different views on this! Also, should HMV and Blockbuster in particular have seen this coming and could they have handled their upstart internet competitors better?
