In this episode, Liam talks to Professor Lord Robert Skidelsky, Biographer of John Maynard Keynes – the most influential economist of the 20th century.


In this wide-ranging interview, Skidelsky discusses how he helped David Owen to set up the SDP in the early 1980s, how economic policymaking works and how he developed from a historian into an economist.


“Britain’s history was forged outside Europe, not within Europe,” Lord Skidelsky remarks, reflecting on the UK’s vote to leave the EU, and why the efforts of Remain-voting MPs and peers to hold a second referendum in a bid to reverse Brexit were in his words “completely wrong”.
