About this Episode

Manhattan Institute economist Brian Riedl joins the show to explain how blowout COVID spending has sent our already-bleak debt trajectory spiraling into potential crisis. He breaks down why yes, deficits actually do matter for economic prospects—and explains why young people should care about the debt crisis in the same way they care about climate change.
