Oxford Democracy-Builders: Reading/Viewing/Listening materials on austerity

Hi there,

Ahead of our fourth (provisionally named) ‘Oxford Democracy-Builders’ meeting to discuss austerity, here is a list of materials for learning about the debate. I’ve tried to bring a wide range of perspectives into the conversation here.

You can download the list in a LibreOffice document here…

Don’t panic!! It’s intentionally long and full of resources. You’re not expected to read all of this! I haven’t!! Just read what interests you. There are short and longer videos too.

If you haven’t used the doodle poll yet to choose a preferred date for the meeting then you can do so here…

Also, I would really recommend the New Economics Foundation weekly podcast on economic issues as a brilliant entry point. It strikes the balance between making content understandable and treating listeners with intellectual respect really well!

Finally, back in 2012, I personally produced a series of podcasts on political-economic issues alongside my friend Neil Howard. You can listen to the one on austerity here…
