How the way we borrow and lend money is changing

Mike Williams finds out how the way we lend and borrow money is changing. He travels to Blackpool to meet 71-year-old Jeannette, whose life was ruined by debt. He speaks to David Graeber, author of Debt: The First 5000 Years, and learns about a ground breaking debt collection service that finds people jobs before asking for their money.
