This Reboot Republic Podcast talks with Dr Cian McMahon, an economics graduate from NUI Galway, former TASC policy analyst and current Postdoctoral research position, Saint Mary’s University Nova Scotia. We talk cooperatives and heterdox economics with Cian.
Cian’s research has looked at the rise and fall of cooperativist initiatives in Ireland and particularly workers coops and the Irish trade union movement. We discuss the possibilities and necessity of a shift to economic democracy and a cooperative economy and its potential to address areas like climate change, inequality and the housing crisis.
