Episode Details

As President-elect Joe Biden takes office, his administration faces challenges with little precedent in recent memory; a pandemic which shows few signs of abating, a vaccine that has been developed in record time, but has seen a slow rollout, and an economic downturn not seen since the 1930s. All of this comes at a time of deep political divisions. On this episode of EconoFact Chats Michael Klein is joined by four of the country’s leading economic journalists; Binyamin Appelbaum of the New York Times, Scott Horsley of NPR, Greg Ip of the Wall Street Journal, and Heather Long of the Washington Post to discuss the key economic challenges the incoming administration will have to address.
