The Common Weal Policy Podcast - Episode #82

Episode 82 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

You can download the episode directly here.

This week, Jonathon Shafi and Craig Dalzell look at some of the party manifestos ahead of the Scottish Elections. In particular they note that many policies that Common Weal have been campaigning for years have been adopted by multiple political parties and now look more like "when, not if" Scotland will implement them. Examples include Universal Basic Income, the Circular Economy and Housing in the Green New Deal.

They also discuss Common Weal's recent paper Better Than This which lays out the eight policies that we think we should be talking about this election.

Craig has a collection of many of the political manifestos on his personal blog here.
