Economic Dynamism with Oren Cass

Oren Cass & Devorah Goldman

December 08, 2019

Recently, the term "economic dynamism" has become as popular as the assumption that it is always beneficial. Guest Oren Cass challenges that view, however, arguing that we must carefully weigh the costs of economic disruption against its well-known benefits.

Oren Cass is a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, where he addresses issues ranging from the social safety net and environmental regulation to trade and immigration to education and organized labor. He also writes extensively on the nature of climate change and on the process of formulating and evaluating public policy. Cass has written for publications including the New York TimesWall Street Journal, and National Review, and regularly speaks at universities and before Congress. This podcast discusses concepts in Oren’s essay from the Spring 2019 issue of National Affairs, "Putting Dynamism in its Place."
