151. The Fate of America

Mona and Jay have a guest, Russ Roberts, the economist and podcaster. He talks about, among other things, immigration. There is hardly any topic today that generates more liveliness. Roberts is lucid on the subject, and Mona and Jay contribute their own lucidity, in their fashions.

Charles W. Calomiris and Stephen H. Haber, authors of "Fragile by Design," speak at the Hoover Institution's Washington office during a podcast of "Econtalk," hosted by Russ Roberts on Feb. 5, 2014.

Then the topic is the fate of America: What’s it all about, Alfie? How will it turn out?

They also discuss Obama and the Supreme Court, new music at Carnegie Hall, and other matters. This is a serious episode – an episode filled with grave subjects – but it’s also a lot of fun. Listen in, as America continues its wild ride.

The closing music is Renee Fleming sings “Panis Angelicus” by Cesar Franck, which was sung during the funeral mass for Antonin Scalia.
