Glenn Loury (Brown University) and Joshua Cohen (Boston Review, Stanford University)

On a truncated edition of The Glenn Show, Glenn and Josh review Obama’s State of the Union address. Did the president bid farewell to post-partisanship? Josh lauds Obama’s efforts to help the poor, but Glenn questions the efficacy of raising the minimum wage. And were Obama’s remarks on the legality of drone warfare ultimately meaningless?
