The “we’re all in this together” mood music from government changed very quickly and the old economic orthodoxy has looked to reassert itself. Our guest is Associate Professor in UCD and columnist with the Sunday Business Post, Aidan Regan, and this is a must listen for both traditionalists and progressives.
Aidan breaks down how the old ideas no longer fit and how Ireland can use this crisis to reshape itself, and do so far a lot less than the austerity hawks would have you believe.
Please listen to this and remember it when you hear the insanity of returning to the path that left us with the highest income inequality in the OECD put forward as a solution to restarting the economy post the Covid-19 pandemic.
