Listen to Adair Turner, expert economics speaker, on the politics of finance

Tune into BBC Radio 4 to catch up with Adair Turner, Senior Fellow at the Institute for New Economic Thinking, who featured on the weekly discussion programme, Start the Week, which sets the cultural agenda every Monday.

Today, Adair focused on the politics of finance, arguing that structural reforms may be required to avoid future financial disasters. He explained that rather than these being purely governmental failures, banks should accept the majority of responsibility, partly because their trading activities are ‘socially useless.’
