Don't know yet but have to say that if Donald Trump was really serious about bringing jobs to America he would have transferred his overseas manufacturing compagnies back to America. You know what they say…. If you want to know the true color of a person follow his money. Bottom line it is cheaper to have products made overseas than in America.

I think both of these guys are clowns. I hoped at least for more from Jeffrey Sachs. The Republican repetitive talking points though are unbearable. Tax cuts and removing regulations are vague promises that have been tried. What do you think we've been doing since Reagan?! It isn't enough to say that this will work. You have to explain in detail how A lead to B in a credible way. And they can't! But Sachs is no better really, which is why the Democratic agenda doesn't sell either. They should be able to convince you, with compelling logic, that something… Read more »

the truth is is that United States is economy stands on the edge of total Financial destruction you have a debt to which 12 Generations cannot pay off. you are elected president who doesn't want to grow the economy but make it stayed in it by P van off other countries that the United States does business with you need other countries to bring your deficit down.

like I said I'm not an intelligent person I've been an opportunity classes my whole life. but I do know that you can not have what Trump wants with opening Industries and creating jobs. The money has to come from somewhere and if you're starting to peel off the countries that you could do business with there's no way that this could possibly happen that would Trump wants. Why do you think Rome survived so long is because of the free-trade they had with other countries. the only way you bring down your country's deficit is by selling crap to… Read more »

that's funny your first guest says that growth can happen in the economy. and he's using the sixties in the eighties as a representation of those percentages. I'm not an intelligent person but I know that the debt that United States has is astronomically more than what it was in the sixties or the eighties. the truth is his back then the resources were there there was no seven billion people on the planet. there's a hell of a lot more mouths to feed on this planet would then way back in the sixties. And I just think your first… Read more »

I predicted a month ago that in less than a year all those so-called patriots who cared about nothing but the debt for the last eight years will/are suddenly say deficits don't matter. Again.

why are Americans getting poor?
2 reasons. Tax evasion and income disparity. If orangutan cannot address that, he will not fix the issue.

JFK could afford to cut taxes because the 1962 the highest tax rate was at 91%

American salaries have not even been close to keeping up with the rate of inflation. The governments inflation calculation is a joke.

Obama doubled the national debt to prevent a total meltdown of our economy which it did. Increasing the debt and decreasing tax revenues simply doesn't make sense other than to huge corporations and the ultra rich. Obama wanted an infrastructure bill, which is what all the conservatives are now crowing about, but when he wanted it congress turned it down.

What is more fiscally responsible? Tax and spend or reduce taxes and spend?

The Republican's along with the corporatist Democrats have buried this country under a mountain of debt without a thought about how future generations of Americans will have to live with their mess.

This guy is nuts. Trickle down economics has proven a failure. HIs comment about the era of Reagan is fools gold. George H W Bush referred to his economic program as "voodoo economics". Reagan promised to reduce taxes, increase defense spending, and balance the budget. Go ahead and cut the taxes and watch the deficit explode. I agree with Sachs and he has changed over time. And of course we need to spend a great deal more on our military, the largest by far in the world. So decrease revenue and increase spending. The greed of the elite is killing… Read more »

trickle down economics have been disproven since Victorian times , but the rich still push it.

the deficits and debt are coming from military spending and perpetual war since 1898. CNN will never hold the military industrial complex accountable.

Steven Moore should never, ever be asked for his opinion on economics. He has been canned more than once for his factual errors and outright plagerism. Add to that he's just a birdie minded ideslouge authoritarian, his thoughts offer nothing productive.

And the debt Obama left, while higher then the one W. Bush left, was a much smaller increase compared to what W. Bush brought up the debt after Clinton.

William Bradford

The question isn't that you can't bring the growth rate up.. it's whether the measures and damages you do in the process are worth it. Look how China and India boosted their economy: through massive pollution and reckless safety and health abandoning. Do we really think that is worth it? America is still twice as rich as China, and yet has one of the worst wealth gaps in the free world. Maybe Growth shouldn't be a priority right now….

Why do you ask a Trump's puppet about numbers or logic? You know even before he speaks, he will make false statements and bullshit his way around the topic.

When tax cuts failed miserably reagan had to raise taxes several times. when he raised taxes the economy did better. Cut taxes – people work less to make the same amount of money which lowers gdp and the worth of the dollar cutting taxes only works if businesses use that money to reinvest back into their companies rather than give upper management high ass bonuses. But history has shown us that is what they pretty much do. give themselves more bonuses higher pay. Cutting taxes led to the great recession and before that the great depression raise gdp first then… Read more »

Stephen Moore is living in a fucking fantasy world and low and behold blaming Obama just like trump! Why do we continue to watch these people who only care about themselves and the fact that they are on TV and getting paid for doing so. How does listening to people like this make Americans great again. All this is doing is enriching the two people being interviewed just as being president is enriching trump! What's mind boggling is the way Americans continue to vote against their own interest every time. Americans are collectively a bunch of poorly educated morons who… Read more »

The globalists continue to try and convince us that we can't have a good economy and the only way forward is through socialism and other command and control economies.  They are selling poverty and massive income inequality like we've had the last twenty years.  Fuck them, I don't care if there are rich people as long as I have opportunities.

The rich will get richer the poor will get poorer.

They're getting rid of Obamacare, they're putting wall street CEOs in charge of the economy, they're giving tax cuts to billionaires. This is a great time to be a rich person.
