The Mueller report in 20 minutes
21 min
The Mueller report is out. All 400 plus pages of it.

If you haven't had time over Easter to read it, we're here to help.

Robert Mueller found no evidence that Trump or anyone in his campaign conspired to collude with Russia.

But, there are now huge questions about whether the President obstructed justice in his attempts to shut down the investigation.

So what are the best bits in the report? What’s new? And is it really a complete exoneration for Donald Trump?

The wellbeing economy: universal basic income with Guy Standing
On the third episode in our special mini-series on the wellbeing economy, Arnagretta Hunter and Sharon Bessell are joined by Guy Standing, economist and author of The Precariat: The New Dangerous Class. With more and more people being forced into insecure work, many are calling for a more lasting solution for precariousness. One often-suggested solution is a ‘universal basic income’, so what might be the benefits of this concept? What policy settings might be needed to make such a scheme successful? And how do political systems that are so focused on jobs and economic growth create space for change? On this episode - the third in our special mini-series on the wellbeing economy - renowned economist Dr Guy Standing joins Professor Sharon Bessell and Dr Arnagretta Hunter to discuss work, basic income, and how some of the economic structures developed in the last century may no longer be in our best interests.
