Big Money Questions

Do you have questions about money and the economy that you have wondered about, but been too shy to ask? That’s why we invented the Big Money Questions. Top economists answer questions such as "What is GDP and how can you possibly measure the economy in one number?", "What is the FTSE 100?", "What is the Bank of England base rate?" "Is growth always good?", "What is a consumer?" and "Wouldn’t it be simpler if we all just paid the same flat rate of tax?" Top economists including David Miles, Jim Rickards, Kate Raworth, Pippa Malmgren, Steve Keen and John Redwood join presenter Rachel Rickard Straus of This is Money to go back-to-basics and explore these questions – often from an offbeat perspective.
