Dan is a lockdown-sceptic and he makes a powerful case for reopening the economy and avoiding a crippling collapse in economic activity. In addition, he believes the government must focus its post-pandemic economic policy on cutting capital gains tax and corporation tax. 

Also in this episode, Christian looks at a warning from the City watchdog that traders working from home could fall foul of insider-dealing rules; the EU’s multi-billion Euro stimulus package; and new leadership at Transport for London.
