Podcast: Andrew Biggs on Paul Ryan and Entitlement Reform

My colleague Stuart James and I have started a new podcast here at AEI entitled “Banter.” This time, we sat down with AEI Resident Scholar Andrew Biggs, noted recipient of copious amounts of adulatory fan mail, to talk about Representative Paul Ryan’s new budget plan and its impact on entitlements including Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

In the podcast, Stu and I try to flesh out some of the bigger issues about budgets and entitlements for a non-wonky audience. In Andrew’s field, the terminology can get a bit overwhelming, but he does a great job clarifying issues like “fiscal consolidation” and “premium-support models” for a lay audience. Not only is his work fascinating, it’s immensely relevant for all Americans.

So go ahead and take a listen, and let us know what you think at podcast@aei.org.
