Tom, Christiana, and Paul are back together (in their separate homes) and we continue our series, searching for how to emerge from the COVID-19 Pandemic better prepared to combat the climate crisis! This week we get a tour of solidarity economics and a treasure trove of economic wisdom from Nobel Memorial Prize Winner, Professor Joseph Stiglitz.

The gang chats about what they've been up to in self-quarantine, they discuss the severity of the income inequality crisis, and Professor Stiglitz reveals to us that these stimulus packages being approved by national governments are proof that we have always been able to afford preventing climate change.
