The COVID-19 pandemic is a disaster for the whole world but one of the reasons it is hitting so hard in Europe is the economic policy of the European Union. We speak to Emma Clancy, a researcher and activist on economic policy and tax justice, about why now is the time for a radical upheaval of EU economic governance. Recorded on April 3, 2020. Kindly presented by Damien Thomson, political adviser to the GUE/NGL group.
