This week’s Think Tank discusses the economy with economist Jim Rounds of Rounds Consulting.

We discuss:

• What do economists do anyway? Why did Harry Truman want “a one armed economist”?

• The state of the economy now. How are we doing? How does this compare to the Great Recession?

• Structural changes in the economy due to COVID, some of which may be permanent.

• The proposed $1.9 trillion Biden pandemic COVID response plan

• How do economic incentives really work? Minimum wage increase vs. unemployment payments. Wouldn’t the former have better incentives for work?

The Think Tank airs on KTAR 92.3 FM on Saturdays 6-7 p.m., and Sundays 9-10 p.m.

Podcasts are available after broadcast.
