Joe Stiglitz on strengthening the economy
It’s a few days old but well worth the investment of six minutes of your time. This is a great discussion on how the US ought to be addressing the surplus of labor available today (rebuilding infrastructure) and getting tax revenues in the door. Cutting everything as the GOP (and some Democrats) want is wrong on so many levels. There’s also an amusing moment when CNBC repeats a recent Geithner line about Keynesian economics being dead. I thought Stiglitz was going to fall over at that moment but he quickly recovered.
