The Debt Dialogues [Episode 21]: Lee Ohanian on the State of the Economy

The Debt Dialogues is a weekly podcast that aims to educate young people about the welfare state and how it will affect their future. In this episode, I interview Lee Ohanian, Professor of Economics at UCLA, on the state of the economy. Topics include:

  • Why unemployment remains high six years into the Great Recession
  • Whether a Keynesian-style fiscal stimulus would improve things
  • The lessons of the Great Depression
  • Whether America is a high tax or low tax nation
