Michael J. Boskin is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and a Professor of Economics at Stanford. Domenech and Boskin discuss Trump’s trade war with China, global economic and immigration trends in Europe, and the economics behind popular 2020 platforms like the Green New Deal and Medicare For All.

“Common sense dictates that there is a certain pace at which society can absorb change, and when it’s too large, too rapid, and there are so many costs, so disruptive, there is going to be a backlash and that’s what’s happening,” Boskin said.
