In this 5th episode of the Zona de Impacto podcast, we talk about poverty in Portugal, which has increased in the pandemic, and energy poverty.

Listen to the analysis by Nova SBE Economics Professor Susana Peralta, together with students and researchers Mariana Esteves and Catarina Pintassilgo

A very cold winter is coming to the homes of many Portuguese people. Who else will hit soaring electricity and gas prices and energy poverty? Who are the poorest and most vulnerable?
