We continue our journey to discover how the economy really works and provide nourishment for independent minds.
Every week we delve into the details of our modern economy. We all know that something is wrong with the way that the economy is currently working and we will find out why.
We pose challenging questions to leading economists from across the globe as we explore the myths and in many cases the lies, that govern our lives in a modern economy.
SCOTONOMICS is essential viewing for anyone interested in Scottish politics and the Scottish economy.
LIVE Every Monday on YouTube and Facebook. All episodes first on the SCOTONOMICS Patreon.
