The Common Weal Policy Podcast - Episode #45

Episode 45 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

You can download the episode directly here.

This week, Jonathon Shafi and Craig Dalzell discuss Common Weal's latest policy paper, Good Houses for All, which lays out a plan to build an unlimited number of extremely high quality social houses at a fraction of the rent of houses built just now by the conventional market. They also discuss the role of the Scottish National Investment Bank and why it needs to be upgraded to support this project as well as the role that the reformed housing sector's supply chains can play in fixing the climate emergency.

You can read the policy paper here.

And you can also read Common Weal's Green New Deal plan, Our Common Home.

More about the Common Home project can be found at the website https://commonweal.scot/our-common-home

And all of Common Weal's policy work can all be found in the Common Weal Policy Library.

Apologies for the drop in sound quality in this episode. This is due to the technical limitations imposed by the current UK lockdown.
