A New Conservative Economics

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

For 50 years the mainstream mantra of North American conservatives has been maximum consumption, maximum growth. But in his newest book, "The Once and Future Worker," American academic Oren Cass says this "economic piety" has ravaged working class communities, leading to lower wages, lower life expectancy, and a further reliance on welfare. Cass tells Steve Paikin about a major recalibration that needs to take place to right the continent's economic ship before it hits the rocks.
