Show Notes
Gordon Abiama (Africa Centre for GeoClassical Economics) returns to the Renegade Economists to discuss the state of play in the Niger Delta, with some harrowing stories on oil grabs and the externalities the community endures. On the positive, he is on the pathway to setting up an ecovillage in Odi. Can we help him?
