Description

On Sunday night the Democrats torpedoed a bipartisan emergency bill that would have increased unemployment benefits, provided payroll and rent for small businesses, and financial assistance for millions of American households. Oren Cass joins us to discuss these and other stimulus measures which would bring desperately needed economic relief to Americans in the age of COVID-19. We also have a wide-ranging conversation about everything from the real cost of climate change to whether or not the gig economy is undermining American industries, and much more.

Oren Cass is the executive director of American Compass, whose mission is to restore an economic orthodoxy that emphasizes the importance of family, community, and industry to the nation’s liberty and prosperity. From 2015 to 2019, Cass was a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, where his work on strengthening the labor market addressed issues ranging from the social safety net and environmental regulation to trade and immigration to education and organized labor. Cass regularly writes for publications including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, National Affairs, and National Review, speaks at universities, and testifies before Congress. He is the author of The Once and Future Worker: A Vision for the Renewal of Work in America.

This podcast addressed some concerns I've had with economic policies. While it didn't provide conclusions, I am grateful to have these prospectives as part of the conversation.
