Dominic Frisby talks to John Kay, one of Britain’s most respected economists and author of Obliquity - Why our goals are best achieved indirectly.
As well as discussing the philosophy behind the book, in the second half of the programme they discuss banking regulation and systems of money. Full of thought-provoking ideas, the final discussion surrounding the financial system should give all listeners plenty of food for thought.
John Kay's career has spanned academic work and think tanks, business schools, company directorships, consultancies and investment companies. He is a visiting Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics, a Fellow of St John’s College, Oxford, the British Academy and the Royal Society of Edinburgh. He is a director of several public companies and contributes a weekly column to the Financial Times.
