This week, Craig talks to Prof. Richard Murphy of Funding the Future about the UK’s inflation crisis, how the Bank of England has misdiagnosed the problem, how the IMF has correctly identified the cause but thinks we should keep doing the wrong thing anyway and what the UK could be doing to bring down inflation, raise wages and reduce profiteering in our economy.
