Ep. 59: It Is Not Necessary To Hope In Order To Persevere (feat. James K. Galbraith)

What would a Great Depression/World War II-like mobilization of American society look like if we were to attempt to fix our country and society today in the midst of the pandemic? Do we, as Americans, have the will, the ideas, the courage or the leadership to care for the sick, protect the vulnerable, and then, revitalize our economy and fix the ugly aspects of our society that Covid-19 has exposed?


Michael discusses these big issues with James K. Galbraith, a scholar, author and one of the pre-eminent economists of our time. Generations ago, when America faced the fallout of the Great Depression and World War II, James' father, John Kenneth Galbraith was the legendary economic thinker who Roosevelt, Truman and Kennedy turned to help steer America and and re-shape the post-war society.
