Tuesday’s show at 12 p.m. will continue our examination of economic issues with a special focus on the two term economic policies of the Obama Administration. Despite the success of the Obama Administration in restoring the American economy after the 2007 Economic Recession and an impressive record of new job creation, foreclosure assistance and the Affordable Care Act, the question is has enough been done to address the special and dire economic circumstances of the African American community. It is estimated that one third of African American wealth was loss during the Recession yet there have been zero racially targeted programs of the Administration to redress this devastating situation.
We will explore this issue in a one on one interview with renowned labor economist, scholar, author, educator and media commentator, Dr. Julianne Malveaux regarding her newly published book: “Are We Better Off: Race, Obama and Public Policy.” Dr. Malveaux served as the 15th President of Bennett College. She is currently the founder and President of Economic Education, a 501 (c) (3) organization, headquartered in Washington, D.C.,”focused on personal finance and economic policy education and their connection.”
The introduction alone in her new book is invaluable reading. The book is a compilation of 86 powerful articles organized around 4 themes: 1) Economics; 2) Education, Politics and Public Policy; 3) Gender, Social Justice, Race: and 4) World Views. In her articles Dr. Malveaux challenges conventional wisdom and preconceptions. She expresses both praise and concerns about some of the actions of and lack of policies by the Obama Administration over these 8 years.
During our show we will discuss this great work of impressive scholarship and broad-ranging perspectives. We will also seek Dr. Malveaux’s insights about the 2016 Presidential Election and her views on the needed economic policies that should be promoted by the next Administration
Our listeners are in for a treat as we speak with one of the greatest thought leaders of our times!
