Hear the creators of two new progressive ideas -- Eric Liu on “middle-out” economics and Erica Seifert on a women’s economic agenda.
President Obama has renewed his campaign to fix the American economy by by strengthening the middle class. Today, we talk with author Eric Liu, who coined the phrase “middle-out” economics.
And Erica Seifert, a political analyst explains how a new “women’s economic agenda” can help Democrats regain the House, keep the Senate and retain the presidency in the years ahead.
And Bill Press talks with John Conyers, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee about the NSA.
Author Eric Liu coined the phrase “middle-out economics,” which President Obama has adopted. What does it mean? Simply that jobs are created not by business tycoons but by a middle class prosperous enough to demand more consumer goods.
It isn’t just pay equity that’s important to women, says political analyst Erica Seifert. It’s their actual pay. She explains how a women’s economic agenda of higher pay, fairness to pregnant workers and child care are even more important than Medicare to the Democrats’ electoral base.
