Occidental are investing in more greenwash to justify extending their production of fossil fuels. I'm very surprised the Economist didn't call them out in this interview.
Good last episode for John
you rightly explain the issue of the funding of retirement allowances in France and then present Macron's reform as a needed solution and modernization effort without challenging its potential impact and efficency. - unemployement of seniors is an issue already , especially for women, it's a huge blind spot of the reform that you did not even mention - funding of retirements can be reviewed in other ways as the current system is bankrupted. why not extending a partial capitalization funding as it has been piloted for years in part of the public sector in France? you could have investigated Then you rather go for the catchy numbers of the 20 years of retirement due to the high life expectancy. have you doble check that number with the prisma of social class? there are huge variations there. Also how many of those 20 years are in good health? again statistics show than only 1/3 I expect more from the economist , what a disappointing episode
Where do you get the statistic that 80% of Russians don't want the Ukrainian war from? It doesn't match any of the reputable sources I can find. and when members of the elite you mention are being killed, what makes you think that the secret service would allow anyone to get even close to that? Thanks
These terrible puns in the ep titles make you seem less serious journalists, more ridiculous twitter people.
I have to have some outlet to say that from everything I have ever heard about Ukraine... I have more patriotism for their country, people, and leadership than that of my own country. Watching the same core of evil that rots my own country too, try to take down one of the few examples of strength, in body, in moral integrity, calls me to action in a magnetically powerful force.
things are not going well for sexual minorities in Amerika, either, nor for any minority except the psychopaths.
Games have had great stories for decades. This piece feels really dated...

How can a serious outlet run with puns like this, especially in wartime?
I found your report on the lady who can detect Parkinson by smell very intriguing. But instead of using an AI machine to reproduce her diagnosis skills, wouldn't it be so much more accurate to train dogs?
I am so used to listening to Jason Palmer. Having two hosts is going to take some getting used to 😶
America = continent United States of America = country stop calling the country "america"
I used to believe The Economist to be an example of good unbiased journalism. When I now read or listen to their coverage on covid situation I'm disappointed to see biased picks of opinions and exclusively backing the main-stream narrative. The current article is no exception: nearly half of German and Austrian population resisting attempts to forced medication was dismissed without giving any consideration to their arguments. No serious health or legal analysis, no historical considerations (Nuremberg Code or Human Rights chapter on bodily integrity, anyone?). Only the two-year-old big pharma propaganda. Disappointing.
it's called a democracy
15:55 In 1509, an increasingly uncomfortable Michelangelo described the physical strain of the Sistine Chapel project to his friend Giovanni da Pistoia. “I’ve already grown a goiter from this torture,” he wrote in a poem that was surely somewhat tongue-in-cheek. He went on to complain that his “stomach’s squashed under my chin,” that his “face makes a fine floor for droppings,” that his “skin hangs loose below me” and that his “spine’s all knotted from folding myself over.” He ended with an affirmation that he shouldn’t have changed his day job: “I am not in the right place—I am not a painter.”
it was informative episode thank you very much
Getting rid of law enforcement in high crime areas? What could possibly go wrong?
