Media Coverage Of Economy Topic On Paltalk
The way the news media covers the economic crisis in the United States and globally leaves many of us scratching our heads, wondering what the real root causes of the crisis are and what are the solutions.
Was it too much government intervention in the economy that caused the world financial fits? Or not enough regulation?
Should the government interject itself into the fray, creating jobs through stimulus packages? Or should it, like the rest of us, tighten our belts, to avoid bankrupting our children's and grandchildren's futures?
Dean Baker, a macroeconomist and co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research is helping us get a better understanding of the financial downturn. And is critiquing the media coverage of this, arguably, the biggest story of contemporary times.
Baker will be my guest tomorrow, February 4, on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com
