Mike Konczal (Rortybomb, Roosevelt Institute) and Josh Bivens (Economic Policy Institute)

In this episode of Fireside Chats, Mike Konczal speaks with Josh Bivens of the Economic Policy Institute on their new edition of State of Working America. They discuss what has happened to median incomes over the past 30 years. What does inequality have to do with the story? And how does the social safety net impact these numbers? What role should education play? And what are the likely debates between left liberals and left neoliberals when it comes to economic policy once we are past the Great Recession? All these questions are answered.
