Gordon Brown on the Global Financial Crisis

Former British Prime Minister, and former Chancellor of the Exchequer, Gordon Brown was on Morning Joe talking about the financial problems facing the global economy today. Brown talked about the new trillion dollar tax package, (he favors short term stimulus to promote growth), implicitly criticized the British government austerity program. He is selling the concept of a global economy that will be driven in future years by exports to the emerging consumer markets of China and Asia. And based on that he favors increased investment in education, and science and technology. An interesting perspective from a man with a nimble mind. Didn’t catch whether he had any comment on the Tony Blair biography. Hmmmm.
