This episode sounded more like propaganda than journalism.

One of the best planet money episodes. Sometimes a dictator is a hero you need, not the one you deserve. I guess?

That journalist hasnt seen bad situation in his country, and thats why he says it isnt worth it. Not saying it is, at least not the military cruelty but saying the Chicago boys policy wasnt worth it, that's just complaint of the privileged

Canada is worse, mental cases running the show. Even a simple return requires reemes of paper and schedules.

America needs a People's Progress Party or some kind of organization dedicated to improving the efficiency of the nuts and bolts of government.

yes, was going to say the same thing about New Zealand... I'm sure many countries have this scheme: you pay back your government issued student loan as a percentage of your income until the loan is repayed. Very similar.

Interestingly the UK student loan system work in a very similar manner to this income share scheme.

Bummer. I thought I had new episodes for both Planet Money and Throughline. They're the same story.

I can't believe this story. How could you not look around for the cheapest price before you buy something? That's like shopping 101. The people who bought that toy on eBay are ridiculous lol

I feel like y'all could have talked more about the surge in home pricing, and the demographics of ownership. Less than 10% of all airbnbs in the quarter were owned by people who lived in the city. Wealth was generated, but not for locals. They were treating this place like a third world vacation spot. And 6-13% ? thats a complete lie. The FQ bubble in some places was up 40%, essentially making it unaffordable for locals. y'all didn't even mention the gentrification. Shame. y'all messed this one up.
