This week, Craig Dalzell is joined by special guest Kairin van Sweeden, Director of the new Scottish think tank Modern Money Scotland. They advocate for a Modern Monetary Theory approach to national finances as well as seeking to give a platform to other forms of heterodox economics theories. Kairin and Craig also discuss the prospect of a Job Guarantee Scheme – a policy that is rapidly becoming popular across the Scottish political spectrum. They also discuss the Scottish Government’s Programme for Government and what that will mean over the next Parliamentary session.
