Dear Ian, Tim, Mike, Jonathan, Bo, Kerry,
Are you available on Monday 10th November to talk with Vicki Barker from the
BBC about how their news service could better represent global economics in
their reporting? (There is a little more information below)
I'll nominate 1-2pm lunchtime as a suggestion, but the timing is totally
flexible if I find that lunchtime is no good for most.
Neil Adger is away for that date, but please do let me know if I ought to
include some other people.
>From Vicki Barker:
If we were to reinvent economics coverage from scratch, TODAY, incorporating
what we now know (or think we know) about global environmental and economic
trends... what would it look like?
In recent years, I have watched an environmental undertow beginning to tug
at economies around the world, even as the world's peoples have been
awakening to the realities of an increasingly-globalized economy; and I have
wondered if current newsgathering practices and priorities are conveying
these phenomena as effectively as they could be.
