The Shortened Trading Week Wasn't Short on Records
This week, Alan Blinder, former vice chairman of the Federal Reserve, member of President Clinton's original Council of Economic Advisers, and Princeton professor, joined to talk about the road ahead for the economic recovery, the new slate of policymakers who will be at the helm of it and whether the Trump administration is trying to make their eventual job more difficult. Columbia Law School professor Kathryn Judge discussed what a Janet Yellen Treasury means for financial regulation. Skanda Amarnath, director of research and analysis at Employ America, took us through the tensions playing out between Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and the Federal Reserve. Then David Wilcox, a former senior adviser to the last three Federal Reserve chairs and current senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Finance came on to discuss his new report about the role of generational wealth and economic mobility.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
