The last of 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)
6: Markets, States and Economics 'Those who are influenced by orthodox economic ideas have no pre-assigned place on the political spectrum - left, right or centre. Contrary to what is often supposed, my fictional orthodox colleague Mr MacQuedy , who favours market-oriented economic policies, is not a man of the right. He holds no firm party political allegiance, and in most, if not all, OECD countries he would have to be classed as a floating voter.'

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
