The CapX Podcast: The Good, the Bad and the Greedy with Martin Vander Weyer


Martin Vander Weyer has had a front row seat for some of the biggest economic developments of the last 50 years – both as a banker and as business correspondent for the Spectator.

His new book The Good, the Bad and the Greedy argues that scandals like the mis-selling of PPI and the fixing of Libor have eroded trust in enterprise, and that only a return to a kinder, more public-spirited corporate culture can fix it.


It’s both a defence of entrepreneurship as an engine of human progress. and a criticism of a capitalist system that incentivises personal gain above all else.

He joined the CapX Podcast for a lively discussion that ranged from what Margaret Thatcher got wrong, to what it’s like to work for Boris Johnson.
