On episode 84, we welcome back Martha Lawton to discuss the how the pandemic worsened social mobility and exacerbated unstable incomes, the gig economy and how it pits us against one another, the beliefs and cognitive distortions of welfare recipients, the emotional effects of poverty, the barriers to accessing the social safety net, why people more often decline rather than accept entitlement benefits, economists’ misconception of the average spender, why economic growth stems from the bottom rather than trickling down from the top, and advice for policy makers to support struggling economies.
Martha Lawton has been helping people to improve their financial well-being for 15 years. She’s facilitated hundreds of workshops and helped thousands of people think more clearly about their finances. Martha is the host of the Squanderlust podcast, a show that covers what it means to be good (or bad) with money and the emotional factors at play in financial decision-making.
