By most accounts, the American economy is booming—manufacturing is at a 13-year high, unemployment is at a 16-year low, and both the stock market and consumer confidence are soaring. 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, four of the nation’s most influential economists 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 good for business? Can the Republican tax bill spur economic growth? Could Trump’s protectionist trade policy put the economy in jeopardy? And is the stock market too high?
