46 集

The aim of this weekly podcast is to make economics easy, uncomplicated and accessible. With the world at a political, technological and financial tipping point, economics has never been so important to all of us and yet, it’s made inaccessible and complicated by so many.

I’ve always thought what is complicated is rarely important and what is important is rarely complicated.


That will be our motto.


Every week we are going to tease out some big economic or political issue facing us, not just here in Ireland but in Europe and further afield. Globalisation has brought us all together. We all face similar challenges whether you live in Dublin, London, Minnesota or Milan.

    The battle for the soul of Fianna Fail (if there is such a thing) and are we witnessing China’s Chernobyl?

    The battle for the soul of Fianna Fail (if there is such a thing) and are we witnessing China’s Chernobyl?

    Napoleon once said “to govern is to choose”, Fianna Fail has to make a choice, will it be SF or FG in coalition? Plus as the Corona Virus spreads are we witnessing China’s Chernobyl, a tipping point moment after with the Middle Kingdom will never look the same again - and are the financial markets pricing this in? Hope you enjoy!

    Vladimir Lenin once said “there are decades when nothing happens and there are weeks when decades happen” - this was one of those weeks. We explain what has happened, we explain what the Sinn Fein vote is not, and what it is. Why it could be positive and what are the possible pitfalls, what it means for NI and whether the shift to the Left is permanent or temporary. New Ireland is up for grabs, who’s going to seize it.

    Irish elections and the differences between Fine Gael & Fianna Fáil

    With an election coming and the RIC debate still raging, we examine the deep differences between FF and FG, what our grandfathers did in 1920, the class basis for 1916, Leinster Rugby and the Christian Brothers Revolutionaries and why Irish politics might be more sophisticated than you imagine. Hope you like it!!
