The Prospect podcast #81: Forging a new political economy, with Paul Mason

By Prospect Team  

It is said that we are living in an age of multiple crises—climate change, political upheaval, and mass disenfranchisement. Radical economist and journalist Paul Mason offers his diagnosis on our current situation, and why the 2008 financial crisis may not be the watershed moment we think it is.

Paul’s new book, Clear Bright Future, comes out May 2.

Plus: Alex Dean on the Huawei leak, and Sameer Rahim on photographer Don McCullin.
