What with the State of the Union address and the ongoing Border Wall/government shutdown showdown and the Virginia political scandals, it’s been a more amazing last week or so than usual to be administering RealityCheks to the national scene.  As a result, I’ve fallen behind on tracking media appearances, so in this posting I’ll be catching up.

I’m especially pleased to report that an interview I was recently privileged to conduct with former Mexican Foreign Minister Jorge Castaneda has just gone on-line at the Henry George School of Social Sciences website.  As some of you may know, I’m a Trustee of the School, and the session was the latest in its “Smart Talk” sessions with some of the world’s leading economic thinkers.

The interview was conducted in late November, but trust me when I say that clicking on this link will bring you to a great conversation about numerous issues still in the headlines – especially concerning the continuing immigration crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Last Friday, I appeared on Joe Piscopo’s morning drive-time radio talk show on New York City’s AM 970 The Answer to preview the State of the Union and discuss the state of the economy.  Special bonus:  We also briefly reviewed the big New York Knicks trade of injured star Kristaps Porzingis that was announced the day before!  Here’s the link.  My segment begins just past the 35-minute mark.

Finally, on January 22, IndustryToday.com published an detailed analysis of mine on which American manufacturing industries fared the best and worst last year in terms of job and wage growth.  Click here to read.

And keep checking in with RealityChek for news of upcoming media appearances and other development.
