Are You Crazy Enough To Be PM?

September 14, 2022

Well, the mad lad did it: Canada's oldest young conservative Pierre Poilievre is head of the Conservative Party. We talk about what makes him a particular threat to Canada's comfortable governing consensus, which is essentially that he has matched the energy and madness of his crazy ideas with the permanent grinding crisis in which Canada is stuck.

PS: Sorry about late episodes, everyone! Riley, Dan, and Milo (who produces this show) have all been away, and Riley's internet has been down. But we're back in regular, fine form!

Note: this one is mentioned as the premium but we decided to make it a free one!

Peter Korotaev (known by an alias on previous episodes, while he was in Kyiv) rejoins us to talk about the strange war economy that Ukraine has found itself with. Heavily indebted, heavily privatised, and *still* citing the disproven/disgraced "Growth in a Time of Debt" hypothesis.
