How Much is Enough?

Is it time for an economic re-think?

I hope you enjoy this video interview with father and son team Robert and Edward Skidelsky about the principles that underpin their fascinating new book How Much Is Enough? The Love of Money and the Case for the Good Life.

Lord Skidelsky, Emeritus professor of political economy and Dr Edward Skidelsky, lecturer in philosophy tackle the questions: What constitutes the good life? What is the true value of money? Why do we work such long hours just to acquire greater wealth? These are some of the questions that many asked themselves when the financial system crashed in 2008. Their perspectives gave me much food for thought! Hope you find it interesting too.
