    Has the US finally borrowed too much? With Jason Furman

    Has the US finally borrowed too much? With Jason Furman

    US government debt is high, and it's getting higher. The US debt-to-GDP ratio is more than 100 per cent of GDP. The Congressional Budget Office thinks the deficit is headed to 6 per cent of GDP, and a lot of that is just the debt interest. Those numbers sound pretty scary, and neither political party seems ready to do anything about it. Today on the show, we worry about it with Jason Furman, the former chair of the Council of Economic Advisers during the Obama administration, and current professor of economics at Harvard.

An SK podcast? Has to be good

I am a massive fan of Soumaya’s work and think it’s great that she is being give free rein to develop a new podcast. I missed the boat on trade talks but the standard of her work through to now creates some firm foundations.

The first episode is good and shows there is a lot potential in the discussions and topics coming up.
