Episode 40 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

You can download the episode directly here.

This week, Jonathon Shafi and Craig Dalzell react to the UK Budget exploring the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak but also the implications of the budget for Tory Austerity and the prospects for Scotland by comparing this budget both to the prevalling ideology in the Scottish Government – that of the Sustainable Growth Commission – and to the needs of a Scottish Green New Deal.

Also mention was Common Weal’s three step roadmap for Scottish independence.

The pre-referendum strategy paper Within Our Grasp.

The pre-Independence Day strategy How to Start a New Country.

And the post-independence 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

The books can be bought at the Common Weal shop here.

And the policy papers and technical reports mentioned can all be found in the Common Weal Policy Library.
