PREDICTING THE FINANCIAL CRISIS
Laurie Taylor
is joined by Richard Dale, Emeritus Professor of International Banking at Southampton University, one of the very few professional economists who predicted the present crisis.  They discuss his recipe for crisis.

WORK/LIFE BALANCE
Dr Ben Fincham, Lecturer in the School of Social Science at the University of Brighton claims to have found a group – cycle couriers – for whom a clear distinction between work and leisure is virtually meaningless.  Dr Ben Fincham and Richard Reeves, author of Happy Mondays: Putting the Pleasure back into Work debate the meaning of the ‘work life balance’.
