When the Gravy is too thick to trickle down
Who are the scariest climate deniers? Maybe not the people who say global warming is a hoax but the people who say they are concerned about it ("Yes,yes, yes!") and then carry on with business as usual ("More, more, more!").
Author Chandran Nair is in sparkling, fearless form as he challenges conventional thinking - not only on climate change but on the economics of fairness. On trickle-down economics, for example, he says: "When the gravy is too thick, it doesn't trickle down."
He's provocative and witty but also deeply serious and empathetic to the needs of the majority of the human family: well worth a listen.
