In this episode we speak with Colin Munro who has had an extensive career with the British Diplomatic Service.

Today we speak about his time as Head of Chancery in Bucharest, Romania between 1981 to 1982.  He provides a vivid view of a country initiating a policy of total repayment of the foreign debt by imposing austerity that impoverished the population and exhausted the economy.
