David Cameron has called for capitalism to be taught in schools.

The Prime Minister said he wanted a “fundamental change” in attitudes to money making – with profits celebrated in the classroom.

Speaking at the Lord Mayor’s banquet in the City, he called for a culture “that values that typically British, entrepreneurial, buccaneering spirit”.

He said the Tories would make sure business was “promoted in schools. Taught in colleges. Celebrated in communities”.

Mr Cameron also signalled that austerity would drag on under the Tories.

He said: “We need to do more with less. Permanently.”

The PM’s remarks will be seized on by Labour as a further sign that he was dragging the Tories to the right ahead of the election in 2015.

But Mr Cameron said Britain needed to “support, reward and celebrate enterprise” to pay for public services.

He said: “That requires a fundamental culture change in our country.
