Kevin Glass (Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity) and Zack Beauchamp (Vox)

On a special year-end edition of Rational Actors, Kevin talks to Zack about his theory that 2013 was the best year in human history. What’s driving the decline in infant mortality? Kevin notes that both the US economy and the Eurozone were surprisingly resilient this year, and partly credits sequestration. Is President Obama a stealth fiscal hawk? Zack claims that 2013 was the year of drones and predicts that 2014 will be the year of robotic warfare. Kevin predicts that the school choice debate will become a major issue going into the next elections.
