Finance-driven growth: It’s not good, folks! This week, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Hussein (@HKesvani) join special guest Grace Blakely (@graceblakeley) to discuss the financialisation of the past 40 years and the post-2008 reckoning that we’re cursed to live through — which is the topic of Grace’s new book ‘Stolen: How to Save the World from Financialisation.’ We also discuss an amazing hit piece in the British tabloids that wants you to believe the Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has a private navy at his cabin in Norfolk.
You can buy Grace’s book from the publisher here: https://repeaterbooks.com/product/stolen-how-to-save-the-world-from-financialisation/ — and if you buy it from Repeater Books you get a free e-book version as well.
