Welcome to the A Long Time In Finance Podcast; the long view of finance, markets and money as seen by two veteran City editors, Neil Collins and Jonathan Ford. Sponsored by Briefcase.News and hosted on Reaction.
The country which first achieved nuclear fission has just become the third (behind Italy and Lithuania) to phase out its entire nuclear fleet. An odd time to do it, when Europe has just cut off Russian gas and the main alternative is to burn more coal. But that’s the Green Party for you. Neil and Jonathan talk to Mark Nelson, energy consultant and nuclear advocate, about the politics of Germany’s contentious phaseout and its economic consequences.
