Watch: The Citizen's Story - building stronger economic democracy

Follow three citizens on their journey debating about and questioning economists, Bank of England officials and business on some of the most important social and economic issues in their lives – from how money is created right through to how the food and health economies work. For many, the journey was transformative, challenging and uplifting; forcing them to rethink what it means to be a citizen in our modern society and economy.
