    Boom. Bust. Repeat. That's the business cycle. Economists have spent entire careers trying to understand it — and even tame it.

    Atif Mian of Princeton University is one of those economists. In this episode, he explains a fundamental relationship between the business cycle, growing levels of personal debt, and income inequality. It's a relationship that could be making the booms and busts of the business cycle more severe over time.
