Podcast: Newly conceivable ideas in economics

Summary:
[embedded content]Alphachat is available on Acast, iTunes and Stitcher.Alphachat’s guest this week was Martin Sandbu, economics writer at the FT and author of the daily Free Lunch newsletter, which we highly recommend.Martin has written extensively about both the appeal of a Universal Basic Income and the ways in which economics should re-orient itself in the wake of the financial crises and deep recessions of the past decade. We asked Martin to join us for a chat about UBI and other ideas in economics that once would have been considered radical or excessive, but which now are the subject of serious debate. We focused especially on the potential for these ideas to directly alleviate problems in the labour market and regional inequalities.
