To go with the reading list I also want to make sure everyone is aware of the media appearances of two of the speakers at the Connecticut Journal of International Law symposium on Friday. Simon Johnson was featured on NPR’s Planet Money podcast on Tuesday. There he discussed why it might be better to let all the Bush tax cuts expire. Tomorrow morning Professor James Kwak will be on Where We Live with John Dankosky at 9:20 a.m. You can listen live online or on the radio. I’ve also dug into the archives and embedded a bonus video below that features Adam Davidson and Simon Johnson explaining the concept of GDP.
