We keep hearing about the need to move away from the economic model that has brought us boom and bust and exposed us to an ecological crisis. But what does that mean and how do we make that transition?

Joining us to discuss all this on the podcast is one of our favourite guests, Assoc Prof in UCD, Aidan Regan. We go into the ideas around a Universal Basic Income and Universal Basic Services, Just Taxation, moving from extractive industries to sustainable ones and a lot, lot more.

Too ambitious? That's a phrase that's being bandied about a lot, as the Fianna Fail, Fine Gael and Green Party programme for government is unveiled, paving the way towards a historic coalition. Michael Brennan, political editor with the Business Post, and Aidan Regan, UCD associate professor and Business Post columnist, join Nadine O'Regan to discuss the programme, while later in the podcast author Debra MacKenzie discusses her new book Covid-19: the Pandemic that Never Should Have Happened and How to Stop the Next One.

Austerity isn’t the Answer with Aidan Regan

Play

The "we're all in this together" mood music from government changed very quickly and the old economic orthodoxy has looked to reassert itself. Our guest is Associate Professor in UCD and columnist with the Sunday Business Post, Aidan Regan, and this is a must listen for both traditionalists and progressives.

Aidan breaks down how the old ideas no longer fit and how Ireland can use this crisis to reshape itself, and do so far a lot less than the austerity hawks would have you believe.

Please listen to this and remember it when you hear the insanity of returning to the path that left us with the highest income inequality in the OECD put forward as a solution to restarting the economy post the Covid-19 pandemic.

Aidan Regan: Economic Ideas and Real Politics

On this episode, something a little different. Aidan Regan is an assistant professor at the School of Politics/International Relations at University College Dublin UCD, and has a podcast we think you’ll like. We think you’ll especially like this episode, since he recorded it while at a conference hosted by the Rhodes Center. His guest? Mark Blyth. He and Mark talk about how Mark first got interested in political economy, the perception versus reality of Europe’s economic challenges, and why some bad economic ideas are just too good to give up.
