Faith Middleton Show: Authors of What's the Economy for Anyway?, The Flight of Gemma Hardy, and Health Insurance: Navigating Traps & Gaps

Activist John de Graaf joins us to talk about his book, What’s the Economy for Anyway? De Graaf and co-author David K. Batker set forth a simple goal for any economic system: the greatest good for the greatest number over the longest run. Drawing from history and current enterprises, they show how the good life is achieved when people and markets work together with an active government to create a more perfect economy—one that works for everyone. Plus, a look at navigating the gaps and traps of our healthcare system.
