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.

In this week’s episode, Neil and Jonathan discuss Boosters vs Doomsters as a key divide in UK economic policy with economist Sam Bowman: You are either a growth-hungry Booster who thinks we can revive the economy, or a pessimistic Doomster who believes struggling Britain is condemned to persistent low growth. We talk to Sam about why the Doomsters dominate the discussion, and how Boosters can bounce back.
