  1. BBC Radio 4 Analysis: Why Economics is Bunk

    Steve Keen has been on the Radio 4 “Analysis” programme on 4th June (at 8.30pm).

    Newsnight Economics Editor Paul Mason interviewed the economist Steve Keen before an audience at the London School of Economics.

    Keen was one of a small number of economists who predicted there would be a major financial crisis before the 2008 crash. He argues that if we keep the “parasitic banking sector” alive the economy dies, and says that conventional economics provides an unwitting cover for “the greatest ponzi schemes in history”.

  2. Martin Cassini 16 May 12

    Campaigner Martin Cassini argues that our system for managing traffic is overdue for radical reform and should be based on trust in human nature rather than an obsession with controlling it. He says a drastic cut in the number of traffic lights would begin the transformation, saving lives, time and money.

  3. Timothy Williamson on Vagueness

    Philosopher Timothy Williamson explains how we can make sense of such vague concepts as 'heap' or 'red' or 'bald' in the process outlining his own solution to what are usually known as Sorites Paradoxes. Williamson gives a precise account of what 'vagueness' means, how it differs from ambiguity, and why this matters.

  4. RB 198: The Community Supported Musician (Rethinking Music VIII)

    Is there room in music industry for middle-class musicians?

    Friend of the show Nancy Baym brought together three career performer/songwriters who all stumbled on the same analogy for how musicians can "make it" in the digital age: that of Community Support Agriculture (CSAs). Kristen Hersh, Zoe Keating, and Erin McKeown discuss what models have worked for them, and the unorthodox ways they've learned to make a living as artists.
