2012 Programme: Making it in the 21st-century

Is it game over for manufacturing in the developed economies or might America stage a comeback? Can there be a rebalancing of production to the West and consumption to the East? Will gas galore provide the cheap energy to fuel that possibility? Does design drive engineering or the other way round? Why do we suffer droughts in wet old Britain? And is file-sharing just stealing?

STRAND CONVENORS: Martyn Perks and Paul Reeves.

INTRODUCED BY: Martyn Perks, director, Thinking Apart; co-author Big Potatoes: the London manifesto for innovation.
