This is a sample of the Munk Members-Only Podcast. The program provides listeners with a focused, half-hour masterclass on the big issues, events and trends driving news and current events. The show features Janice Gross Stein, the founding director of the Munk School of Global Affairs and bestselling author, in conversation with Rudyard Griffiths, Chair and moderator of the Munk Debates.
This week’s Munk Members Podcast focuses on three big issues in the news: America’s massive $1.9 trillion dollar stimulus is stoking inflation fears and igniting a debate about the economic utility of direct cash payments of hundreds of millions of people; has the British Monarchy finally passed its sell by date in a world grappling with racial justice, inequality and elite privilege?; and as Italy announces a third national lockdown for Easter to try and stem the surge of new variants of COVID-19, should other countries that have been similarly slow to vaccinate follow suit? We debate it all.If you like what the Munk Debates is all about consider becoming a Supporting Member.
