The Deficit! So What? & Why America Needs Socialism

The federal deficit has shot up like a SpaceX rocket because of Trump’s tax cuts and the COVID-19 Recession. Does it matter? And what happened to all the Deficit Hawks who used to predict doom? This week on the Heartland Labor Forum, we’ll ask UMKC economist Matt Forstater. Then, we talk to GS Griffin about his book, Why America Needs Socialism: The Argument from Martin Luther King, Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, and Other Great Thinkers. Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.
