Latest episode of our award winning podcast – subscribe on iTunes!

There’s been a panic in the stock markets in recent weeks after the Dow Jones plunged more than 1000 points on a single Monday in the first week of February. When the stock market plunges should we all be worried? Or does it only affect those wealthy enough to be trading?

This week, Ayeisha Thomas-Smith is joined by Frank van Lerven, NEF economist, and Anna Isaac, economics correspondent at The Telegraph.

If you back a recovery plan based around great public services, protecting the planet and reducing inequality, please support NEF to build back better.
