    Britain’s Private Debt Problem

    Britain’s Private Debt Problem

    Contrary to political group think it was actually access private debt not public debt that brought the economy crashing down.

    But today private debt is again raging and nobody seems to want to address the issue.

    On the latest episode of Renegade Inc, co-founder and presenter, Ross Ashcroft sits down with anthropologist and writer, David Graeber and former chairman of the now abolished Financial Services Authority, Lord Turner to discuss what is preventing us from talking about the taboo that is Britain’s private debt problem.

    Looting Libya

    Looting Libya

    One of the biggest Western foreign policy adventures in recent years is something that is underreported in the media. So-called ‘intervention’ in Libya has created a failed state that is riven with extremists all vying for power.

    So we ask: was this really an epic foreign policy mistake? Or was destroying Libya just another day at the office for politicians, shortsighted bureaucrats, and vulture corporates who continually try to enforce global economic supremacy?

    Host Ross Ashcroft is joined by Dr. Matthew Alford, teaching fellow in politics at University of Bath, and Dr. Tim Coles, director and founder of Plymouth Institute for Peace Research.

    UK food security: A fork in the road

    UK food security: A fork in the road

    Britain’s MI5 has always maintained that the UK is just four away meals from anarchy. So with fractured supply chains, rising costs, and failing agricultural policy, how worried should the Brits – who are net importers of food – be?

    Ross Ashcroft is joined by agricultural analyst Michael Raw to discuss our national food security.

    Profits or policing?

    Profits or policing?

    One thing Theresa May will be remembered for is her treatment of the British police. When she was Home Secretary, Mrs May brutally cut more than a fifth of all funding to police forces. The unofficial diktat was that the police should do more with less, a mystifying statement that almost guarantees a demoralised and thus compliant workforce.

    So is this what she wanted? Or was there another motive to this act? A political move maybe, that would begin the privatisation of Britain’s police force.

    Joining us to discuss the ongoing privatisation that the police and other public services are subject to, is the activist and campaigner with South Yorkshire Migration and Asylum Action Group, John Grayson, and senior lecturer of criminology at Sheffield University, Adam White.

    The not-so-free press

    The not-so-free press

    George Orwell famously said journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed. Everything else is public relations.  In a world festooned with PR exercises and reputation management, was Mr Orwell overly cynical, or was he well ahead of his time?

    With print media’s business model in free fall, newspaper proprietors are increasingly desperate to find ways to ensure financial viability. The problem with this approach is that corporate interests can and often do trump the interests of readers.

    Joining us to discuss how free the UK press really is are the lecturer in journalism and media studies at Birkbeck College, Justin Schlosberg, and the editor of Open Media at openDemocracy, James Cusick.

    J is for Junk Economics

    J is for Junk Economics

    “Economics has failed,” is a phrase that is becoming more common by the day, the result of the current economic paradigm of neoliberalism.

    But economist, Professor Michael Hudson says economics has not failed at all. It is working perfectly well, according to the rules upon which it has been set.

    On this week’s episode of Renegade Inc, we explore the cover story of neoliberal economics.
