Gene Epstein discusses with Jorge Rojas the current economic conditions prevailing in the United States. They mainly talk about the past recession, the effects it had and still has today. Returning to the source of the problem, they discover how the interplay between Wall Street and the U.S. government policies resulted toxic to the markets, which led to dangerous roads. Despite the internal political debate, he describes how a tendency toward libertarianism and free market has grown, all of which is reflected on strikes and public demonstrations. Epstein also comments on the Index of Economic Freedom and explains how this measurement helps to foreshadow the economic growth and development of a country.
