Listeners loved the last podcast with Economic Justice campaigner, Accounting Professor and Co-founder of the Green New Deal, Richard Murphy, so he’s back now to tell us about the new UK Prime Minister, Lizz Truss and her cabinet of right wing die-hard neoliberals.
We discuss how unlikely this new government are to “deliver” for the people suffering from inflation and the cost of living crisis, what it means in the modern parlance to be a failed state and just how bad could it all get in the months ahead. So gloomy topics, but Richard also puts forward some more optimistic alternatives.
We also look at what this all means for Ireland, the NI Protocol and that awful word stability.
