What’s behind the cost of living crisis?

We are looking at various aspects of the ‘cost of living crisis’ (and what’s really behind it): – The Marxist economist Michael Roberts helps us to demystify inflation and the related calls for ‘wage constraints’. – Harry Paterson (adviser to the BBC series ‘Sherwood’) discusses the similarities between the Great Miners’ Strike and the current RMT dispute – both have been provoked by a right-wing government, though there are obvious differences – A number of trade unionists discuss the ‘summer of discontent’ and the relationship between political and economic struggle – especially around Unite’s decision to take a step back from the Labour Party.
