Intelligence Squared U.S. - Are the Rich Taxed Enough ?

Solid food for the mind.” “My must-listen podcast.” IQ2 US is the program for listeners who crave a clear view of the big questions that divide Americans. Every episode brings together world thinkers, policy-makers and journalists, in 2 on 2 debates, to argue the pros and cons of issues like health care, foreign policy, clean energy, and the war. Then listeners weigh in. Expect ear-catching, provocative radio that enlightens, entertains and informs.

How do we fix the economy? The U.S. government’s budget deficit is nearing a trillion dollars for the fourth straight year and unemployment remains high. With the Bush-era tax cuts that are set to expire at the end of 2012, what is the best move for continued economic recovery? Are the nation’s wealthiest not paying their “fair share,” or should tax breaks be extended for everyone in the name of job creation? The Panelists are Glenn Hubbard, Robert Reich, Arthur Laffer, and Mark Zandi.
