Let's Talk it Over
Debt as Power
Debt is power. Extractive power over people and planet. Class societies ensure that the debts of the extractors are never paid while insisting that the debts of the exploited are sacrosanct. In this episode of LTIO we dissect debt and discuss how to overthrow its hold over the many. With Yanis Varoufakis, Astra Taylor and Jayati Ghosh. Show hosted by Frank Barat.
