In this podcast, I discuss the economic future of the West with Steve Davies. A historian, he is currently Head of Education at the Institute of Economic Affairs in London, and the author of books such as Empiricism and History and The Dictionary of Conservative and Libertarian Thought. You can find him on Twitter.
We cover the following issues: why Steve is pessimistic about Western living standards over the next two decades; why the price of oil needs to remain high; why the EU is stuck between a rock and a hard place; why energy sanctions against Russia are self-harming; and why nuclear energy is not a panacea.
