TIL DEBT DO US PART: the case for personal debt write-off
In this episode:
Hello! Households in the UK have a combined £1.6 trillion of personal debt and this is growing. What impact does this debt have and what we should we do about it? We talk to filmmaker Dan Edelstyn, creator of the ‘Bank Job’ - a film/art project to write off local community debt in Walthamstow. Laura Hanna explains the ‘Rolling Jubilee’ campaign in the US and what they’re now doing to mobilise those in debt. Then Johnna Montgomerie, author of ‘Should We Abolish Household Debt?’, discusses her ambitious proposal for government to cancel and write down billions of pounds of harmful debt.
Comedian and Children's Author Olaf Falafel retrains annoying animals, demands free biscuits, feeds his neighbours and votes in a Child PM.
