The Candidates on The Rigged Economy; Everyday Ethics

Email a Friend
What are the candidates proposing for the "rigged" economy?

Coming up on today's show:

  • Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton say the economy is "rigged." Mike Konczal, a fellow at the Roosevelt Institute who blogs about economics at Rortybomb, discusses what they mean by that, and how they say they'd address it.
  • Peter Singer, philosopher, professor of bioethics at Princeton University, author of Animal Liberation and now Ethics in the Real World: 82 Brief Essays on Things That Matter (Princeton University Press, 2016), talks about the need to bring ethics to bear on decisions we encounter every day and not just as an academic study.
