This week Iona Bain, founder of the Young Money blog, joins the podcast to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on women’s and young people’s finances. With women facing disproportionate challenges and caring responsibilities in a world in lock-down, we look at whether government and the financial sector are doing enough to support them.
Iona argues that we should be particularly concerned about the long-term impact on the “coronial generation”, the young people entering the work force at this time of crisis. She makes the case for the importance of this generation to our long-term prosperity and sets out why we should consider a debt jubilee.
