Intelligence Squared U.S. Debates: Unresolved: America's Economic Outlook

Airs Sunday, March 4, 2018, at 6 p.m. By most accounts, the American economy is booming, but just what is driving this upturn? And can Americans trust that current economic conditions will hold up in the months ahead? In our season premiere, five esteemed economic thinkers debate the state of the American economy, from tax cuts to trade policy. Closing in on the Trump administration’s first year, we’ll ask: Is deregulation driving the booming economy? Can the Republican tax bill spur economic growth? And is the stock market too high? The debaters are: Jason Furman, Simon Johnson, Stephen Moore, Dambisa Moyo, and Gillian Tett.
