The west will lose out in the scramble for finite resources, and so as "the rest" rise "the west" will decline, not just relatively but absolutely. To respond effectively, governments need to reskill our population, combining carrots and sticks so as to get everyone into productive work. She is also right that the psychological shock as the west realises that it is no longer top dog could lead to demoralisation. Britain pioneered western disillusion: famously, having lost an empire, we floundered for two decades struggling to "find a role".

Richard Digance began his TV career on Sound of The City for Thames TV, produced by Richard Newman, in the early 1970s. This debut appearance was followed by The Old Grey Whistle Test and then the Today programme. He then became a regular contributor on The 6 o'clock Show with Michael Aspel. He had to wait over a decade to be given his own show. How The West Was Lost (1975).

How the West Was Won is a live triple album by the English rock group Led Zeppelin, released by Atlantic Records on compact disc on 27 May 2003, and DVD-Audio on 7 October 2003. The recordings are taken from two 1972 performances in California: . Forum (25 June 1972) and Long Beach Arena (27 June 1972). Guitarist Jimmy Page considers Led Zeppelin at this point to have been at their artistic peak, as is mentioned in the album's liner notes and in an interview he gave to The Times newspaper in 2010.

Digance's first solo success came with his 1975 album, How the West Was Lost. Featuring such tongue-in-jowls tunes as "Working Class Millionaire" and "Drag Queen Blues," the album was named Folk Album of the Year by Melody Maker. Frustrated by his experiences with the Transatlantic record label, Digance launched his own label, Dambuster, in 1977. He later sold his interest in the company. The writer and director of two plays, Sex, Spangles and Sensible Shoes and Fear of Frying, Digance's autobiography, A Wealth of Comedy, was published by Robson Books
