Thinking Aloud
Tariff Wars: Funding the Young US Government
“In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” - Benjamin Franklin It’s an unforgettable quote we often find ourselves repeating just about every April while grumbling about the IRS. Today on Thinking Aloud we’re joined by William K. Bolt, author of “Tariff Wars and the Politics of Jacksonian America.” Deciding how to pay for the government has always been a tug-of-war that never seems to end, but at least for America we can say where it all began. —Original airdate: 1/17/2018
