Heckuva busy day here at RealityChek! And it’s not over yet!
Later tonight, I’ll be back on John Batchelor’s nationally syndicated radio show to talk about the newest developments in President Trump’s China trade policy. The segment is slated to begin at 10:15 PM EST. You can listen live at this link to what’s sure to be an informative discussion involving John, me, and co-host Gordon Chang. And if you’re doing something else (like watching The Americans? Game 7 of the Washington Capitals’ playoff series?), I’ll post a link to the podcast as soon as one’s available.
This morning, I was interviewed on the same subject at CNNMoney.com. I haven’t yet found the video on-line, but if I do, I’ll certainly let you know.
And in the afternoon, I appeared live on the Voice of America’s Chinese language broadcast to the People’s Republic in an effort to explain the Trump China trade policies. Although you’ll have a hard time hearing the English discussion beneath the translation into Chinese, I’ll post this video ASAP as well.
In addition, my views on welfare reform were quoted in this news analysis yesterday by Brendan Kirby of Lifezette.com. Click here to read it.
And here’s a link to an in depth interview I conducted (for a change) on a subject that should be near and dear to the hearts of everyone who holds a job or who hopes to secure employment: whether revolutionary technologies already coming on stream will dramatically reduce the number of jobs for us humans.
The interview is part of the “Smart Talk” series sponsored by the Henry George School of Social Science – a New York City-based economics research and education organization on whose Board I serve. My guest was Robin Gaster, a leading economics and technology consultant, and even though the subject of automation and employment has been covered extensively in the media, I have no doubt you’ll be astonished by many of Robin’s findings and insights.
