The Debt Dialogues [Episode 37]: Daniel Mitchell on the OECD Inequality Study

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 Daniel J. Mitchell on the OECD’s recent study claiming that inequality harms economic growth, and that redistributive policies to fight inequality don’t. Topics covered include:

  • Problems with the report
  • How the OECD’s own prior studies undermine the report’s claims
  • How wealth redistribution harms economic growth
  • Why the post-World War II era doesn’t prove that we should restrict economic freedom today
  • How to improve the performance of the U.S. economy
