Turns out, everything you learned about economics is wrong. And if we don’t do something about rising inequality, the pitchforks are coming.

So important

Very relevant. Takes into account all of the subtleties and nuances within the economy. It re-write the economic narrative that we’ve been fed for decades.

Political economics

Be forewarned this is clearly progressive agenda economics. That doesn’t mean that the points are good ones, however it gives only one side of the argument. Should be more of a political show than an economics one

Inspiring

I’m overseas and I feel like all I’m getting is depressing news from the US. There is some exciting stuff and ideas coming out in the US and I’m excited to get involved when I get home. This podcast takes on different economic issues so you can see how little changes can make a big difference.
