Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams and the Guardian newspaper's economics editor, Larry Elliott have launched a new book examining the role of morality and ethics in business.
The book, Crisis and Recovery: Ethics, Economics and Justice, published by Palgrave Macmillan, brings together a collection of leading commentators on current economic issues and casts a critical eye on the way money shapes society.
The official launch took place at the British Library on Tuesday 28 September from 6.30-8.00pm, and was broadcast live at http://www.intelligencesquared.com/events/crisis-and-recovery
