8/30/11: A Tale of Two Theories

Salt Lake City, Utah – There's been a lot of talk since the economy stumbled about how to get it back on track. Should the government cut taxes or spend money to get things flowing again? This debate isn't new; it's been raging since the Great Depression, when economists Friedrich Hayek and John Maynard Keynes developed theories that get to the heart of this fundamental question. Tuesday, we're talking about supply-side and demand-side economics and asking what each approach could do to make a difference today.

Our Guests:

  • Steven Horwitz, Charles A. Dana Professor and Chair Department of Economics, St. Lawrence University
  • Heather Boushey, Senior Economist, Center for American Progress
