Gold in the Velodrome vs Economics

I don’t know either but tonight (Wednesday 16th) on Radio 4, Tim Harford is apparently going to tell us.

For those of you around this evening, it’s on at 8.45 p.m. For everyone else (and you if you listened to it live and then want to hear it again), it should be on the iPlayer via the link above.

I’ve set the recorder.
