The Common Weal Policy Podcast - Episode #48

Episode 48 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

You can download the episode directly here.

This week, Jonation Shafi and Craig Dalzell discuss Common Weal's latest policy paper Resilience Economics which lays down an economic framework for rebuilding our economy after the pandemic. They look at why our pre-pandemic economy failed, who will take us "Back to Normal" if we don't force change and what that change could look like if we get it right.

Craig and Jonathon also discuss the political turmoil unfolding in the United States with the Black Lives Matter protests as well as the political farce unfolding in Westminster with the return to physical voting in the middle of a pandemic.

You can read the paper in full here.

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.
