Michael Lewis: Greek state is an "elaborate patronage operation'
Michael Lewis puts the boot in on BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme; he compares Greece and Germany’s behaviour since the euro’s launch, and their different responses to the credit crisis. Lewis’s tour d’horizon, Boomerang – the Meltdown Tour has been well reviewed.

Here’s more on the book.
