The Bottlemen

Austerity Barrage ft. Peter Korotaev

August 20, 2022

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. Check out his writing in Jacobin: https://jacobin.com/2022/07/ukraine-neoliberalism-war-russia-eu-imf
