    /139/ Dollar Empire ft. Yakov Feygin & Dominik Leusder

    On dollar hegemony.
     
    Dutch disease has long been seen as the curse of resource-rich economies in which a currency appreciates and jobs are lost overseas. But what if the greenback is having the same effects on the US economy, the largest in the world? Many historians and economists have studied the global effects of having the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. But what is the effect on the US economy itself? The authors of an influential essay on this question join us to talk about the feedback effects of dollar hegemony.

    The Class Politics of the Dollar System, Yakov Feygin & Dominik Leusder, Phenomenal World

    UNLOCKED /115/ Singapore Shangri-La ft. Lee Jones

    UNLOCKED /115/ Singapore Shangri-La ft. Lee Jones

    Singapore is held up as a free-market utopia: rich, orderly and clean. But the reality is quite different. Why does Singapore exert such a magnetism for neoliberals, when its reality strays from orthodox prescriptions? What and who made this model 'global city', and how does its communist and anti-colonial past lead to its hyper-capitalist present?
