Saving the Gig Economy from Politicians.
I discovered this remarkable and highly intelligible economist when Joe Concha had her on as a guest filling in for Hannity. I was hooked by her composure, common sense and the sensible steps she explicated to help fix the USA’s horridly broken system. I am now listening to her on a regular basis. She is passionate about the problem of our national debt and offers excellent advice not only to help but to warn financial imbeciles like myself of the coming ‘economic catastrophe’ if things continue to progress down this reckless path.
Carol is fantastic
Excellent podcast, finally someone talking about spending and the deficit.
Thanks from having me on the podcast, Carol! A tremendous host who makes economics understandable and hones in on important issues like gig work and independent contracting. Must-listen!
