Jeff Madrick on the case for big government: Part II listen11/13/08 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Thursday | Listen to this entire show:
In former New York Times columnist Jeff Madrickâ€™s new book, The Case for Big Government, he writes about the diminishing quality of life for most Americans over the past three decades.
â€œSome new evidence now suggests that relatively few Americans are able to rise above the socio-economic level onto which they born that was once the case.â€
Madrick then asks: " Is this a national tragedy? The fact that many think this is not suggests an age of national limits.â€ Written before the current financial crises, WMNF asked Madrick if he thinks this is a legacy of the Republican revolution.
