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.
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.

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…
