This week on Taking Stock with Mandy Johnston:

As the government tries to urgently bring in new changes to the planning system to fast track supply – Mandy was joined by Brian Moran, Senior Managing Director, Hines Ireland & Ronan Lyons, Assistant Professor of Economics at Trinity College Dublin & Director of Trinity Research in Social Sciences to discuss our housing planning process and ask whether the prevailing political climate is becoming a hostile environment for large investor companies.

Adam Tooze, Professor of History & Director at the European Institute at Columbia University joined Mandy to discuss his new book, 'Shutdown: How Covid Shook the World’s Economy’ where he analyses the different ways governments around the world responded to the pandemic, and what it reveals about the way power works in the modern world.

Azeem Azhar, award-winning entrepreneur, and host of his own podcast ‘Azeem Azhar's Exponential View’ joined Mandy to discuss his new book ‘Exponential: How Accelerating Technology Is Leaving Us Behind and What to Do About It’ in which he argues that we are entering a new era of human history where the advancements in technology have allowed the likes of Amazon to approach traditional business in a different way, resulting in growth at remarkable speeds.
