The State of The Economy with Roger Altman

August 31, 2023

In This Episode:

James and Al lament the Trumpist takeover of the House Oversight Committee and the expiry of childcare support, and talk with financial maven Roger Altman.  They look at the improving strength of the economy, and weigh the options of Jay Powell as the risks of recession and inflation’s dangers seem to be declining.  Then, they break down the effects of China’s economic malaise and why they won’t surpass us, and explain why one of our biggest upcoming challenges will be spending the massive funds allocated to our country from the infrastructure bill and other initiatives.
