This week, Craig is on holiday, so it’s Rory filling in. On today’s episode, Rory speaks to Dr Franziska Paul, Lecturer in Political Economy at the University of Glasgow about a project she is currently working on alongside Professor Thomas Marois of McMaster University in Canada looking at public banks and sustainable finance. Rory spoke at a workshop organised by Franziska last week, bringing to life Common Weal’s vision for a Scottish National Investment Bank, and how it can be used to fund parts of a Green New Deal.

Franziska’s broader work looks at de-privatisation, mutating neoliberalisms and the politics of the conjuncture, you can find her publications here: https://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/business/staff/franziskapaul/#publications
