CapX Live with Tom Bergin & Dr Kristian Niemietz
on ‘Free Lunch Thinking’
Do lower taxes really stimulate growth? Does the minimum wage cost jobs? Is regulation bad for innovation? In his book Free Lunch Thinking, award-winning journalist Tom Bergin argues that firmly held, but to his mind questionable, tenets have convinced policymakers there are painless solutions to intractable human problems.
Making the case for the defence as a trenchant advocate for free market capitalism, Dr Kristian Niemietz will go head to head with Tom to discuss the fundamentals of economic theory and whether they are based on facts or faith, in a debate hosted by CapX Deputy Editor Alys Denby.
