George H. W. Bush's Financial and Economic Legacy
The nation is still mourning the loss of 41st U.S. President George Herbert Walker Bush. His life of service to this country began when he fought in World War II and continued well past his time in the White House. Although he was praised for his foreign policy, he also had a lot of success on domestic policy, which contributed to the growth in the 1990s, including his work on deficit reduction, trade, and the repair of the banking industry. Host Dan Loney talks with Kent Smetters, Professor in the Department of Business Economics and Public Policy at the Wharton School, and William K. Black, Associate Professor of Economics and Law at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, about George H. W. Bush's legacy on Knowledge@Wharton.
