The moral maze: 'libertarian paternalism' up for debate

I've just listened to Radio 4's 'Moral Maze' which discusses the book 'Nudge' and the way the state has taken up the idea. I was nudged (har har) towards the programme by Chris Snowdon of 'Velvet Glove, Iron Fist', who appears in it, standing up against the resident arch control-freak. James Delingpole* does good work and, a little surprisingly, Michael Portillo makes a lot of sense.

Listen here for the next week. (Not sure if it works outside the UK).
