The New New Deal: The Hidden Story of Change in the Obama Era

The New New Deal: The Hidden Story of Change in the Obama Era This year's presidential election is a referendum on President Obama's economic policies, including his efforts early on to stimulate the economy out of the global financial crisis. His $787 billion stimulus bill, or the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, "swiftly became a national laughingstock," writes Senior Time Magazine Correspondent Michael Grunwald in his new book The New New Deal: The Hidden Story of Change in the Obama Era. But Grunwald spent two years investigating how the legislation could impact future generations, and concluded it's the Obama Administration that will have the last laugh. Join Grunwald and New America's Editorial Director and Vice President Andr?s Martinez for a conversation about whether the Recovery Act will come to be considered as consequential an achievement as FDR's New Deal.
