Free Exchange: Adrian Wooldridge on Capitalism in America


This week’s episode of Free Exchange is a recording of the most recent CapX Live event: a conversation with Adrian Wooldridge, the political editor of the Economist, where he also writes the Bagehot column on British politics.

Adrian came to CapX HQ to talk about his new book. He and former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan have recently published Capitalism in America, a brilliant economic history of the United States. (You can read my review here.)

In explaining America’s unlikely rise — one of the greatest success stories in human history — Greenspan and Wooldridge make the case for popular capitalism. In doing so, they use the past to explain how America can rediscover its dynamism and make the most of the future.

I hope you enjoy the conversation with Adrian as much as I did.
