Western politicians nervously talk up signs of economic recovery after the financial crisis, with many buoyed by falling oil prices. Yet a return to the boom years seem a long way off, and there are fears that insecurity in emerging markets (especially China) could plunge the East into crisis, and take the West with it. Have we learned the lessons of the crisis or simply stumbled through? Is the UK better equipped for another shock, or is crisis around the corner?
