INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.
Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Alex Brill.
Price and Brill review the sweeping — and expensive — policy proposals of President Joe Biden. Are they rooted in reality or just for show to make the most liberal wing of his party happy? With the incredibly narrow margins in Congress, it is unlikely many of his policies will pass.
Frank Bruni, the very progressive columnist at the New York Times wrote:
” Is it possible that we’re all being just a little gullible and that Joe Biden hasn’t moved as far away from moderation and toward bold progressivism as much of the coverage of him maintains?
Could it be that he never held that much hope of enacting the sweeping agenda, with its astronomical price, that he proposed? That he’s doing a bit of a pantomime of shooting for the stars to please Democratic dreamers, but that he suspects all the while that he won’t really get beyond the stratosphere? And is more than fine with an abbreviated ascent?”
Price and Brill explore that very topic in this important segment.
According to the American Enterprise Institute, “Alex Brill is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where he studies the impact of tax policy on the US economy as well as the fiscal, economic, and political consequences of tax, budget, health care, retirement security, and trade policies. He is the editor of Carbon Tax Policy: A Conservative Dialogue on Pro-Growth Opportunities. Before joining AEI, Brill served as the policy director and chief economist of the House Ways and Means Committee. Previously, he served on the staff of the White House Council of Economic Advisers.
