I did another Radio Economics interview this week (here).

This time, it was with Dr. Mark Thoma or Economist’s View. We discuss the economic impact of Katrina, including the expected impact on inflation, interest rates, unemployment, future tax cuts, the budget deficit, consumer spending, national debt, and whether the Fed will monetize the debt.

Its always interesting having these discussions with someone from the Academic side of things — I like hearing a diifferent approach and perspective on Macro issues.

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

  1. Dr. Thoma did a great job even though he lacks your media experience.

    As always you demonstrated an excellent understanding of a wide range of topics – well done!
