Main Street Contract and MPR

6 Oct

About 15 minutes into this MPR interview the author talks about how President Obama wanted to implement a Wall Street Transaction Tax (championed by NNU as part of the Main Street Contract For America!) but ultimately yielded to his team of economic advisers – most notably Larry Summers. Fascinating interview and even more fascinating book (Confidence Men by Ron Suskind).
