At a critical moment for British politics and the economy, the shadow chancellor steps forward to be interviewed for Financial Director.

Considered the smart, strategic thinker behind Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell has spent most of the time in the shadows- which has allowed an image of him as a Marxist- plotting to overthrow the capitalist system- to develop.

In this candid interview he offers his views on building the economy, Brexit, employee share schemes, nationalisation, banks, audit, corporate taxation, climate change and arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

On reading it, you can decide whether he is “the most dangerous man in Britain” or a force for economic good.
