@ Brookings Podcast: The Economic Crisis; Health Care Reform; Education

March 13, 2009

In this week’s podcast, Brookings examines three different domestic policy challenges facing President Barack Obama. Council of Economic Advisors Chair Christina Romer discusses the nature of today’s financial crisis and notes the similarities and differences with the Great Depression of the 1930s. White House Watch asks Brookings expert Henry Aaron to discuss health care reform and lay out his proposal for step-by-step legislative action. And the man on the street segment provides different views on improving education and paying teachers for performance.
