Duration: 6 hours 25 minutes
Is Social Security really going bust, and what does that mean to me? If I hire an immigrant, am I hurting a native-born worker? How much can presidents really affect economic outcomes? Why does the stock market go up when employment declines? What's a "living wage?" Why do I feel so squeezed? If you'd like to know the answers to these questions, premier economist Jared Bernstein is here to help. In Crunch, he answers these as well as dozens of other questions he has fielded from working Americans by e-mail, on blogs, and at events where he speaks. Chances are, if there's a stumper you've always wanted to ask an economist, it's solved in this audiobook.
