Book Review: Redeeming Capitalism by Kenneth Barnes
Capitalism has rarely been less popular. In his new book, Redeeming Capitalism, Kenneth Barnes discusses the moral failings that need to be tackled if the system - which has been a force for much good - is to survive. In a conversation with Share Radio's Simon Rose touching on debt, conspicuous consumption and the changed nature of work, Kenneth Barnes suggests how capitalism can once more become our servant, not our master.

Book Review: Bean Counters by Richard Brooks
In the financial crash and subsequent financial scandals, The Big Four accountancy firms have largely escaped censure. In a fascinating new book, Bean Counters: The Triumph of the Accountants and How They Broke Capitalism, investigative journalist Richard Brooks highlights how far the global giants have moved from traditional auditing and exposes their conflicts of interests and inadequacies which, he says, pose a considerable threat to financial stability.

The Book Review: What actually is money?
Nearly a decade ago the world's biggest banks were brought to their knees. And with each new victim of the financial crisis, it quickly became clear how ignorant regulators had been about the activities of those in the City. But, whilst we have pulled back from the brink, the financial system hasn't become any less mystifying. For those not in the monetary policy bubble, the idea that central bankers can conjure funds for quantitative easing seemingly out of thin air is purely mindboggling. So, money still makes the world go round - but what actually is it? Where does it come from - and who's in charge of creating it? I'm now joined by Ann Pettifor, director of Policy Research in Macroeconomics and author of 'The Production of Money: How to Break the Power of Bankers', which is published by Verso Books and retails for £12.99.
