Austerity as ideological opportunity As prominent economist Ha Joon Chang has written many times, the UK's problems go far deeper than the cuts agenda. British debate on economic policy is getting nowhere. The coalition government keeps repeating that it has to cut spending in order to cut deficits, no matter what.

At that time the city occupied a commanding position between the prefectures of Shunqing centred on modern Nanchong to the north and Shaoqing centred on modern Pengshui to the east. Skyscrapers at night in central Chongqing, China.
Chongqing city was under the administration of Sichuan province frombut in it was separated from the province and designated a provincial-level municipality under the direct administration of the central government, the fourth one after BeijingShanghaiand Tianjin to be established. Both the city and municipality have experienced quick development since then.
In addition to Sichuan to the west, the municipality is bordered by the provinces of Shaanxi to the north, Hubei to the east, Hunan to the southeast, and Guizhou to the south. Area Chongqing municipality, 31, square miles 82, square km.
Landscape City site Chongqing municipality consists of three lobes of unequal size extending southwest, northeast and southeast. The districts of central Chongqing city occupy the southwestern lobe and are ringed by suburban districts. From there the northeastern arm spreads along the Yangtze valley.
The southeastern lobe, stretching southeastward from the Yangtze valley, consists of a series of hills and valleys between Hunan and Guizhou; the Wu River another tributary of the Yangtze runs roughly along the southwestern side of the lobe until it veers south into Guizhou.

The Fangdou Mountains occupy the eastern portion of the municipality, and in the south the Dalou Mountains extend northward from Guizhou. The central part of Chongqing city is built on and around a hilly promontory of red sandstone and shale that constitutes the southern limit of the relatively low Huaying Mountains, which reach southward from Sichuan.
The promontory is bounded on the north by the Jialing River and on the east and south by the Yangtze, effectively forming a peninsula projecting between the two rivers.
Climate Chongqing is noted for its mild and intensely humid climate.
Because of the high humidity, fog and mist are particularly heavy. From October to April the city is perpetually blanketed by fog, which hampers inland navigation, aviation, and local traffic. The aptness of this name has only increased under present-day conditions: City layout Central districts The Old City of Chongqing formerly surrounded by a city wall and gates, of which only two gates now remain occupies the eastern third of the rocky promontory and covers an area of about 28 square miles 73 square km.
However, few of these picturesque lanes now remain. During the Sino-Japanese War —45 the offices of the Nationalist government were located there, and they are now the sites of government office buildings and of museums and exhibition halls, notably the Great Hall of the People completed The city has grown so much that the incorporation of numerous industrial towns and suburban communities has extended the city limits to Jiangbei in the north and to Baishiyi in the west.
Equally important are the former suburban areas on the south shore of the Yangtze. In former times, ferries were the only means by which the rivers could be crossed; later they could also be crossed by way of the Jialing Bridge to the northwest and the Chongqing Yangtze Bridge to the south.The Fix reporters add insight and analysis to the complete transcript from Monday's debate.
