Economics | Social and Behavioral Sciences
Public debate about economic policy is rarely edifying and political discourse about economic issues during the first year of the Clinton presidency has been no exception. It’s been discouraging. The low quality of public discourse about economic life seems to be an outcome of a drop in quality of political discourse about nearly everything in our culture. Consider the debates about jobs – the declared centerpiece of the Clinton economic policy – and efforts for and against international trade over the past year.
