In a BBC-interview in 2008 Hobsbawm said:

"It is certainly the greatest crisis of capitalism since the 1930s. As Marx and Schumpeter foresaw, globalization not only destroys heritage, but is incredibly unstable. It operates through a series of crises.

"There'll be a much greater role for the state, one way or another. We've already got the state as lender of last resort, we might well return to idea of the state as employer of last resort, which is what it was under FDR. It'll be something which orients, and even directs the private economy," he said."

These sentences are cited very often as you can see by Google. I am sorry, but I do not have the exact date of the interview and so on. --13Peewit (talk) 00:24, 29 August 2012 (UTC)
