Making economics relatable!

I love this podcast because it applies academic economics to current issues and presents them in ways that everyone can understand. It is relatively apolitical and deals with facts and data, interpreting them so we can all understand how and why current economic issues affect us in our daily lives.

Bernie Sander’s Economic Advisor

If Bernie Sander’s Economic Advisor (Stephanie Kelton) is one of the hosts you can expect the podcast to be obvious Leftist Propaganda. The Four Day Workweek episode for example talked about how concerned FDR was for the average American which is why he promoted the minimum wage laws. Yet, it mentioned nothing of the clearly racists background of minimum wage laws which were actually intended to price out lower skilled black and brown employees. The episode also talked about John M. Keynes as if he was some great genius; when most of his economic theories have been proven to be dead wrong.
