Keeping the free market faith

For Radio 4:

The financial crisis has made many on the political right question their faith in free market capitalism. Jamie Whyte is unaffected by such doubts. The financial crisis, he argues, was caused by too much state interference and an unhealthy collusion between government and corporate power.

Interviewees include: Matthew Hancock MP, Minister for Skills and co-author of Masters of Nothing. Luigi Zingales, author of Capitalism for the People: Recapturing the Lost Genius of American Prosperity and a professor at Chicago Booth School of Business.

The programme was first broadcast at 8:30 PM, 8 Oct 2012. It is available on iPlayer and in MP3 format through the BBC Analysis podcasts site.
