@ Brookings Podcast: Rep. Jane Harman on Afghanistan; Economic Opportunity in America

October 16, 2009

Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) says the United States must help Afghanistan root out public corruption and establish trust in a democratic regime, while Brookings expert Bruce Riedel says too few resources have been devoted to the struggle in that county. And economists Isabel Sawhill and Ron Haskins outline their proposals for increasing economic opportunity here at home, and discuss the appropriate government role. All in our podcast, @Brookings.
