Business Daily - Capitalism as a tool of war
One of America's most senior officers on how the Army used capitalism to help persuade militants to lay down their weapons and take up business instead.
A year since US troops left Iraq Lieutenant General Jeffrey Talley, head of the US Army Reserve, tells Justin Rowlatt how America uses capitalism as a tool of war. He describes how the strategy was used in Iraq - first in the militant stronghold of Sadr City in Baghdad - and how he believes it contributed to securing a lasting peace. Plus how the IMF got austerity wrong and Lucy Kellaway on why people tend not to laugh at women's jokes.
