From the BBC Radio 4 series about life's big questions - http://www.bbc.co.uk/historyofideas

How does religion fit with the world of business? Perhaps more closely than you think. The sociologist and economist Max Weber argued that after the Reformation one form of Christian Protestantism, Calvinism, encouraged a different attitude to work, with far-reaching effects.

Narrated by Stephen Fry. Scripted by Nigel Warburton.
