What you won’t hear in the queen’s speech: teaser
As a busy year draws to a close we want to look back at those people who’ve inspired and enlightened us in 2017. Coming up this week is the first of two shows we take a whistle-stop tour around the thinkers, writers, doers and Renegade types we met during 2017. Tune into Renegade Inc on RTUK, on Monday the 25th of December at 7.30am, 1.30pm, and 6.30pm, or stay glued to the website for upcoming episodes.
Meet the Renegades: Christian Felber
Christian Felber is an author, lecturer and founder of the Economy for the Common Good. He asks why have we strayed so far from our roots?
Meet the Renegades: Naila Kabeer
Naila Kabeer is not your average economist. She speaks directly about the human condition, performs fieldwork and complies her own statistics. In this episode of Meet the Renegades, we speak to Naila about global access to labour markets, the strain living in an economy puts on the ability to act in solidarity.
Meet the Renegades: Michael Hudson
How could an economy that created so much debt also save the banks rather than the economy itself after 2008? In this episode of Meet the Renegades, economics professor and author, Michael Hudson discusses the phenomenon of debt deflation and how the economic curriculum should change in education.
Meet the Renegades: Stewart Cowley
Stewart Cowley is one of the few people who has worked on Wall Street, The City and in the Fund Management Business who says openly the problem with the finance industry is they don’t understand the word ‘enough’. His admission is refreshing.
Meet the Renegades: Johann Hari
Author of Chasing the Scream, Johann Hari deconstructs the War on Drugs and the myth that decriminalising drugs will worsen already abhorrent circumstances. Everything we know about drug addiction is wrong – so how can we think differently about a solution to this 100-year problem?
Meet the Renegades: Jim Mellon
Having worked in fund management, property, mining and now biotech, Jim Mellon is a man who pulls no punches. In this episode of Meet the Renegades we speak with Jim about business, politics and his view on what is driving the global unravelling.
Meet the Renegades: Graham Brown-Martin
In this episode of Meet the Renegades we speak with Graham about transforming our education systems and his view on preventing a intellectual mono culture.
