Description

James M. Stone’s new book Five Easy Theses (“an important book for readers of any political stripe”—Tom Daschle, former senate majority leader) lays out common-sense solutions to our most pressing domestic policy challenges. An esteemed business leader with years of public-sector experience, Stone makes clear recommendations for how to shore up Social Security, tame the deficit, rein in Wall Street, and make healthcare and education more affordable. The author and CEO of Plymouth Rock joins in a discussion focused on income and wealth inequality with Eduardo Porter, New York Times columnist (The Economic Scene) and author of The Price of Everything.
