The Debt Dialogues [Episode 24]: Jagadeesh Gokhale on America’s Debt Disaster

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 Cato senior fellow Jagadeesh Gokhale on America’s entitlement-fueled debt problem. Topics covered include:

  • How much debt does America face?
  • What is the cause of our mounting debt?
  • What are the economic effects of enormous debt levels?
  • Is this problem hard or easy to fix?

Note: the audio is of lower quality than usual. My apologies.
