A Jubilee for First World Debtors?

Over the last three decades consumers in the Anglo-American economies have been engulfed by a tidal wave of credit/debt. Now that the tide is going out, poor borrowers and homeowners, small businesses and large, find themselves beached – deserted by bankers; and by the ‘guardians of the nation’s finances’ – i.e. central bank governors and finance ministers. Is it time to call for a Jubilee for poor debtors in rich countries?

Ann Pettifor is executive director of Advocacy International, and the author of ‘The coming first world debt crisis’ published in 2006.
