The CapX Podcast: Bonds, Bailey and Bonking for Britain


We aren’t in the habit of quoting Lenin on CapX, but his observation that there are ‘decades when nothing happens and weeks when decades happen’ has felt pretty apposite recently.

So there’s plenty to discuss in our latest topical podcast: from chaos in the gilt markets to the Government’s growing list of u-turns. We also take on the broader question on the UK’s miserable growth path and long-term demographic prospects – and whether it’s the proper role of the state to try and get the birth rate up.

Joining John and Alys on this week’s episode is Gerard B Lyons, Business Researcher at our parent organisation, the Centre for Policy Studies.
