Guest host Ray Suarez, sitting in for regular On Point host Tom Ashcroft, talks with author and historian Thomas Frank about how the selling of post-secondary education, the federal government (via trade deals and tax policy), and big business (via globalization and the neutering of unions) have negatively impacted working Americans.
An interesting nugget from Mr. Frank: “People in DC always talk about the skills revolution … . The problem is not that we don’t have enough skills … . They [Democrats] see every economic problem as an education problem. It’s not. It’s a problem of power.”
