Journalist Karen Day documents her visits to four communities to illustrate the impact of the recession on the lives of the people who live there. ; Four very different communities - Gellideg in Merthyr Tydfil, Hedworth in Jarrow, South Tyneside, Broadgreen in Swindon and Barkerend in Bradford - reveal the recession's effect on real people's lives, from the social and economic impact of job losses to disaffected young people and stalled regeneration. ; In the rush to proclaim the end of the economic downturn, places like these could be overlooked just as public service cuts start to bite, pulling them further into poverty and widening the gap in inequalities even more.
