Six talks about the influence of economic ideas on policy by David Henderson. Head of the Economics and Statistics
Department in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
4: Orthodox Economists versus the People
'Current trends in Western trade policies are disturbing. In particular, it is a sad reflection on present-day economic statesmanship in countries such as Britain that it views the extensive and growing network of discriminatory export restraint agreements as a positive achievement. In this respect as in some others, official policies rest on a conception of national interests which is pre-economic.'

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
