#007 - Death, Taxes, and Government Intervention (ft. Lisa Gladson, M.A.)
It's not everyday that someone's eyes light up during a discussion of basic economics. Tariffs, gross domestic product, international trade agreements - these are not words that elicit an emotional response beyond the occasional flashback to macroeconomics tests you may have sweated through during school. However, as members of society we are all active participants in the economy and are subject to its principles. Usually despite our lack of knowledge of the subject.
Join us as Dr. Lisa Gladson walks through some basic economic principles which affect your daily life. Lisa aims to provide the necessary information for understanding governmental economic policies and the ways in which government policy affects the economic success of a country. She unpacks these policies using past and present examples, allowing listeners to become informed voters for the future.
