Harvard Kennedy School’s Jeffrey Frankel explains how economics is about more than money—it’s about tradeoffs. Frankel also looks at the failure of our political system and how better choices by our lawmakers would make the country better.
Once a week, 92nd Street Y’s Campaign for the American Conversation offers you insight and analysis from the best minds at the Harvard Kennedy School. HKS is collaborating with us on American Conversation Essentials – short videos that explain the issues at play during this campaign year. The videos are the building blocks for your own conversations with friends, colleagues and even people you’re not sure you agree with. Start with the information we offer here and then keep your mind open as you discuss the topics of the day.
