Weekly Economics Podcast: The stories that broke the economy, and the stories that can fix it

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

Some common lines you’ll hear about the economy: we all put money in, or take it out. Some people pay their fair share, but others don’t. We can’t overspend – putting public spending on the national credit card would be irresponsible.

But not all of those lines are strictly true and the way we talk about the economy affects the way we think about its future. This week on the podcast: what we’re really talking about when we talk about the economy.

Ayeisha is joined by Anat Shenker-Osorio – communications expert, researcher and author of Don’t Buy It: the trouble with talking nonsense about the economy’, and Ellie Mae O’Hagan – journalist and author of the forthcoming book The New Normal’.
