In this episode of Left Out, political economist Ann Pettifor speaks with Paul Sliker about the production of money, as well as why challenging the despotic power of finance and fixing our economic system, crucially depends on people's understanding of it all.
"Very often my experience is that activists don't ever talk about this stuff. They don't have a list of these demands. We want to do something about taxes or we want to do something about investment—all that tangible stuff that you can see on a day-to-day basis. We don't ever to talk about this thing which you can't see, which is the financial system. So if we can just get talking about that we'll begin to make ways." -Ann Pettifor
