In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, we listen in as Heartland Senior Fellow Peter Ferrara joins The Larry Kudlow Show. Ferrara is the author of the recently released book on entitlement reform titled Power to the People. Ferrara and Kudlow discuss the potentiality and likelihood of a 4% growth rate in America.
Kudlow seeks Ferrara’s opinion on the recent comments by Jason Furman, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, that suggested four percent growth was implausible. Ferrara is more optimistic. What is stunting our growth?, asks Kudlow. Is it secular stagnation as some suggest? or is it just bad policy? Kudlow also asks about Ferrara’s views on the upcoming 2016 presidential election. Ferrara tells who his favorite candidates are what he thinks about Hillary Clinton.
