The Bigger Picture: Is Grexit inevitable?

The Bigger Picture: Is Grexit inevitable?
Another chapter has unfolded in Greece's slowmotion debt crisis. Earlier this week, European finance ministers and Athens agreed to negotiate economic reforms in exchange for further bailout payments. With a sovereign-debt showdown staved off, bond holders rejoiced, and yields dived on the agreement. By now, this story should be a familiar one. Ever since the financial crisis plunged Greece into turmoil, bailout brinkmanship has been a fixture in the Eurozone's calendar. But, this time, some feel the winds of change may be about to blow through Athens. If the left-wing-led government is truly willing to bend the knee to EU & IMF reforms, the austerity borne by Greece as a price for debt relief could be wound down. In turn, Greece may be freed from its low-growth malaise. What next for Greece? On today's a View From, Simon hears from Desmond Lachman, Resident Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and previously deputy director at the IMF's Policy Development and Review Department, and Vicky Pryce, economist and author of 'Greekonomics'.

The Book Review: How stagnant charity threatens democracy
Britain is defined by the personal generosity of our predecessors as much as by the state. But with demands on the voluntary sector growing and charitable giving stagnating, is our very way of life as a liberal democracy at risk? John Nickson is one of the country's most experienced fundraisers. In his new book 'Our Common Good: If the State Provides Less, Who Will Provide More?', he argues that there could be catastrophic effects on our democracy unless we commit to creating the social, cultural and intellectual capital we need to sustain society and our economy. He joins Simon Rose in the studio.

Share Politics: A business rate betrayal?

Share Politics: A business rate betrayal?
It's time to talk politics. The House of Lords has begun debating the Article 50 bill - legislation that, if passed, would empower Theresa May to trigger the UK's departure from the EU. Meanwhile, the Government has locked horns with its backbenchers over growing fears they may revolt on a re-evaluation of business rates. Adjustment occurs every 5 years or so to reflect changes in the property market, but, with the prospect of rate rises in Tory heartlands, not all Conservative MPs are onboard. Senior ministers have penned a letter to stave off the rebels-in-waiting, insisting bills will not rise for most firms. Will the Lords block Brexit? Is the Government about to blow small business out of the water? Simon was joined in the studio by Jerry Hayes, former Conservative MP and now barrister and political commentator, Bob Neil MP, former Communities and Local Government Minister, and Dr Nicholas Wright, Teaching Fellow in EU Politics at University College London.
