“AFD 66 – Mandela”
I reflect on Nelson Mandela’s legacy. Guest Neal Carter talks about Millennials of Color. Then, I defend the minimum wage and unemployment insurance, and I pitch “Pelosi for President.”
– AFD: Republican confusion on Mandela
– AFD: In defense of the minimum wage
– The Atlantic: Rand Paul Couldn’t Be More Wrong About Unemployment Insurance
Unfortunately, I was sick for a few days, so there is no new episode of Arsenal for Democracy this week. We expect to return next week. Lots more written content to come between now and then.

Bill asks what role the financial services sector should have in the U.S. economy. Sarah talks with Bill about Oklahoma’s abortion restrictions which the Supreme Court blocked. Then Bill assesses the UN Congo mission.
I wrote this item in The Globalist after recording the finance segment, to expand upon a point I briefly passed over in the show.
