Podcast of My Appearance Today on The Attitude

I appeared today on The Attitude with Arnie Arnesen, broadcast by WNHN 94.7 in Concord, New Hampshire.   The topic of our discussion was austerity, disaster capitalism, the upcoming sequestration, Washington corruption and incompetence, and the exaggerations promulgated by Fix the Debt and other such organizations to scare people into undermining progressive government.  Arnie’s questions were great as always.  You can listen to the podcast of the show at the link below.  My segment appears about halfway through the first hour, after the musical break at the 28 minute mark:

  1. I flubbed one thing early in the discussion trying to explain sectoral balances. I started out OK, but I erroneously said that we had to save more if the government sector moves toward surplus, when the fact is that if the government deficit decreases, the private sector saves less. But hopefully the common sense part of the explanation came through OK.

  2. OK, loved the hillbilly version of “Dirty Deeds…” in the bumper music for your into Dan… nice touch! ;)

    Dan I wish she would have let YOU talk more… ;) she seemed pretty fired up herself today and has some sharp instincts wrt “the math” imo …. vast mathematical cognitive deficiency out there on this issue..
