What does the economic policy platform of a Pirate Party look like? What does it say about intellectual property protection (i.e. copyright and patents), the Right to Repair, UBI, taxation, and business support? And what type of pirates are Pirate Parties inspired by exactly: Captain Jack Sparrow or Kim Dotcom? Pirate Party Australia Treasurer John August (a Fusion Party candidate for Bennelong in the 2022 federal election) answers these questions in a conversation with me in the latest episode of my Economics Explored podcast. For a sample of what John has to say, check out the video clip below.
