Dr Aileen Marron #Austerity Ep. 84

No matter the malady, after the Global Financial Crash, we were told that Austerity was the only treatment. Our guest in the tortoise shack, Sociologist at the Higher Education Authority and author of the upcoming book: Austerity – Media Portrayals of the Public Sector During the Financial Crisis, Dr Aileen Marron ( @alienmoron ) joins us to talk about how we never heard real dissenting voices and how playing the Private Sector off against the Public Sector deflected from the real causes of the crash.

It’s a fascinating insight into how groupthink trickles down and dismisses scepticism as revolutionary. Enjoy.
