Obama on Economic Policy

. Wednesday, April 29, 2009

Very good interview with President Obama on economic policy, conducted the NY Times' David Leonhardt. They cover a broad range of topics, from financial regulation to health care. Obama demonstrates a lot of knowledge of the relevant issues, and acknowledges that his preferred policies involve trade-offs that many will not like. He seemed a touch defensive when questioned about Geithner and Summers, and especially about the influence of Robert Rubin on his administration. He doesn't bash trade or immigration (in fact, he doesn't really mention them at all), which is encouraging.

Worth reading, no matter your personal partisanship, to gain an understanding of the way Obama is approaching these issues.
