Episode 209 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

This week, Craig talks to Rory Hamilton about two major stories in Scottish politics this week. This first is the publication of our policy paper Profit Extraction which looks at the high levels of foreign ownership in the Scottish economy and how that leads to billions of pounds being pulled out of the country every year. The second is the collapse of the SNP-Green cooperation agreement, the resignation of the First Minister and what that might mean for policies currently moving through the Parliament.

Shortly after the recording of this show, the Vote of No Confidence in the government failed with 58 votes for to 70 against, with the SNP and Greens voting to support the government.
