Money for people and planet: State spending as a source of Public Finance.
In this episode of the State of Power podcast, Professor Mary Mellor makes the case for governments to pay for public projects through their budgeting process. This episode is one of a series of three, drawn from discussions around an upcoming publication, on who we can build “Public finance for the future we want” curated and edited by Satoko Kishimoto and Lavinia Steinfort. The other two installments are on Cooperative Finance, and on the role of Public Banks. Guest: Emeritus professor Mary Mellor (Northumbria University, UK)
