566. Bidenomics vs Fiscal Conservatives

Listeners might remember last summer when we spoke with economist, hedge fund manager and co-author of Angrynomics, Eric Lonergan, about the radical steps he suggested needed to be taken by the US and the EU to prevent the worst economic damage of the COVID-19 pandemic hitting people who already feel left behind by their governments.

So following our (Patron Only) podcast with Stephen Kinsella last week, we decided to ask Eric back on to tell us how he thinks that we are getting on. Unsurprisingly it’s a mixed bag. We discuss the need to change the old economic mindset and to rip up the fiscal rules and Eric outlines how this can be done whilst creating a stake in society for everyone and tackling that polarisation and wealth gap. Another great conversation.
