Keeping the Free Market Faith

Duration:
30 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 08 October 2012

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.

Producer: Helen Grady.
