    A note from Lev:
    I am a high school teacher of history and economics at a public high school in NYC, and began the podcast to help demystify economics for teachers.  The podcast is now within the top 2% of podcasts worldwide in terms of listeners (per Listen Notes) and individual episodes are frequently listed by The Syllabus (the-syllabus.com) as among the 10 best political economy podcasts of a particular week.  The podcast is reaching thousands of listeners each month.  
    The podcast seeks to provide a substantive alternative to mainstream economics media; to communicate information and ideas that contribute to equitable and peaceful solutions to political and economic issues; and to improve the teaching of high school and university political economy.  
    I am looking to be able to raise money in order to improve the technical quality of the podcast and website and to further expand the audience through professionally designed social media outreach. I am also hoping to hire an editor.

Interview with Dr. Ahilan Kathirgamar on microcredit in Sri Lanka

This is an excellent evidence based and honest interview where Ahilan has not only convincingly explained that this individualised strategy of livelihood generation through micro credits has failed miserably but more importantly he has charted an alternative collective strategy to generate sustainable livelihood to families devastated by war in Sri Lanka. He pointed out that the neoliberal policies followed from the late seventies onwards has created economic inequalities and poverty unheard of before.

Only economic democracy and socialised production as opposed to individualised efforts can bring about sustainable and meaningful economic prosperity, justice and equality. I am convinced of his critique as well as his alternative strategy.

Interviews like this are useful to create economic awareness by dispelling myths propagated by neoliberal pandits.

Can’t recommend this enough!

Love this podcast - the range of interviewees and subjects is vast, and there’s no grandstanding, theoretical, political or otherwise, by the presenter. Good length as well.
