About the Program
Mr. Conard makes the case that most commonly held beliefs for what caused the 2008 recession are wrong. For example, he argues that predatory lending and Wall Street greed did not cause the collapse of the housing market. He also argues that income inequality and the tax policies of Republican administrations have been beneficial for all Americans. He debates his perspective on the American economy with Michael Ettlinger, the Vice President of Economic Policy for the Center for American Progress.
