Discussion on the role of the state

The following extract was recorded from BBC’s Today programme on 6th December 2014.

Having studied the effect of globalisation on the state as well as society centred ; state-centred and new right theories of the state we can now listen to some actual discussions on competing theories of the state.

The discussion focuses on what size of a state we really want, what we are prepared to pay for and what we can really afford? Where do other countries draw the line? Ann Pettifor is a director of Prime Economics Policy Research in Macroeconomics. Liam Halligan is an economist and Telegraph columnist.
