Money Matters

The podcast about sustainable financial policy

About the podcast

We need new perspectives for financial policy and must ask the right questions:

Why can government debt be a good thing? How do bad rules for the financial markets drive up your rent? How can we make fiscal policy that focusses on the interests of people with low incomes?  Why is it so important that budgetary policy is gender-equitable? 

You can hear discussions on these and many other topics in Money Matters, the podcast about a sustainable financial policy with Anna-Lena Kümpel and Green MEP Rasmus Andresen. In each episode, the two meet exciting interview partners and discuss the really important aspects of financial policy with them in a way that everyone can understand and join in.

Currently, 17 episodes have been published. The topics range from the mechanisms of general price increases to feminist financial policy and the very big financial issues of intergenerational justice. Money Matters is a podcast by and with Rasmus Andresen, produced by BosePark Productions. Concept: Jonas Illigmann

He is also a member of the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs. Rasmus is also active in digital issues, in particular as a deputy member of the Committee on Industry, Energy and Research.
