Politics Theory Other #103 Rentier Capitalism: Who Owns the Economy


Brett Christophers on the extraordinary dominance of monopolistic rent-seeking in the UK economy and why the concept of rentierisation is more useful and accurate than the notion of financialisation when talking about the trajectory of the UK and world economies, with Alex Doherty on the Politics Theory Other podcast.
