William Gale and Richard Reeves discuss their policy proposals for economic growth and dynamism, part of the new Blueprints for American Renewal & Prosperity. Gale focuses on more economic relief and stimulus now; Reeves on middle class tax cuts and some free college for national service.
Also, David Wessel explains why low interest rates means a President Biden and the next Congress should not worry so much about the federal debt, and instead pass more COVID-related relief. Also listen to this segment on SoundCloud.
