Interview with Obama Economic Advisor

I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, but here's an hour-long interview with Austan Goolsbee.

UPDATE: I listened to the full intervew. (The complete mp3 doesn't work, but the chopped up 7 minute mp3 files do.) The most interesting parts are segments 4 and 5 when he's talking about inequality, and segment 8 in which he talks about the politics of health care and also their retirement program proposals. His discussion of the retirement proposals mirrors my own analysis, which is here. Overall, he sounds like a nice guy with views which are typical of a center-left academic economist.
