BBC iPlayer: Hard Talk interview with Jon Moulton on the credit crunch


http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00df9vn/b00df9pc/
Lasts about 30 minutes. I downloaded it and have watched it five times now.
A maverick capitalist explains how the last 25 years of Thatcherite policies seem to be resulting in an inevitable nasty recession. He explains how it happened and talks generally about financial matters in a most lucid manner. I must watch it again before I delete it.

I dunno, banks did lend money like it was going out of fashion but if people over stretched themselves in asking for the money isn't that there fault?
We bought a house we could comfortably afford, even though the banks would have lent us a load more and paid of extra whenever we could and as such aren't in the position where we have to worry about repossession or been able to afford the payments.
