Beschreibung von Audible

In this 2007 program from the 92nd Street Y, star economist and liberal provocateur Paul Krugman joins radio host and award-winning interviewer Leonard Lopate in a discussion about American economic history. Krugman states that he always had ambitions to be a historian and in The Conscience of a Liberal he got the opportunity to explain the widening income gaps of the 20th century. Krugman is opinionated and vivacious and it is easy to understand why he has excelled at classroom teaching over the years. Comparing the Bush Administration to the Nixon Administration, the economist does not shy away from the inflammatory statements that have made him such a controversial columnist for the New York Times.
