"I'd Like To Speak To The Captain Of This Spaceship"

"Amartya Sen, the Harvard university professor and Nobel laureate, has sharply criticised European governments for embracing austerity measures to cure their economic difficulties, describing fiscal tightening policies in the UK as premature and “oddly confused”... Mr Sen said the rush to impose austerity plans across Europe was a “spiralling catastrophe,” and was even threatening to drag the US in the same direction. ... "Many countries in the west seem to be doing their best to go straight into the mouth of a fairly hefty snake."”
