Description

In Part 2 of our look at President Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz says Trump’s push for a payroll tax, for example, “would be undermining the fiber of our economy. … It doesn’t help now, and it really hurts going forward.” Stiglitz served as chair of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Bill Clinton and as chief economist of the World Bank. He is now a Columbia University professor and chief economist for the Roosevelt Institute. His latest book is “People, Power and Profits: Progressive Capitalism for an Age of Discontent.”
