Should Capitalism be Criminal?

How effective is the law at protecting us from harm? Is our society too concerned about the apparent problem of crime and punishment rather than recognising bigger threats to our wellbeing? Instead of focussing on punishing individual murderers, what would happen to crime rates if we got rid of inequality? Would society fall apart, or would life be better for us all? In this show, Dr Lynne Copson (University of Edinburgh) asks you what kind of policies would really improve our daily lives, and whether crime rates are what we should be worrying about.
