Listen to the episode “The left and the EU – the neoliberal conundrum” of the Another Europe podcast with economist Ann Pettifor and Podemos activist Sirio Canos Donnay.
Reflecting on the polarisation between the right and left which has opened up in European politics since the financial crisis this podcast discusses the neoliberal conundrum: if the EU has been dominated by free market economic thinking does that mean progressive forces across the continent should support an exit? What are the lessons we might derive from Spain and other countries? And how can progressives mobilising across borders effectively confront the insurgent far right?

Ann Pettifor will be one of the speakers at the upcoming European Alternatives Congress “What comes after the nation-state?” in September on the panel: “10 Years of Lehman Brothers Collapse — O Brother, Where Art Thou?”.
