Austan Goolsbee’s Tweetstorms Criticizing Bernie Sanders
Austan Goolsbee — economist at University of Chicago Booth and former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors under Obama — did some quality live-tweeting during the Democratic debate last weekend.
He really laid into Bernie Sanders’ Medicare-for-all plan —
He was also very critical of Bernie Sanders’ understanding of systemic risks in the financial system during his January 5 tweetstorm—
It’s easy to dismiss criticism of Bernie Sanders when it comes from conservative-leaning sources, but when it comes from a respected Democrat economist like Goolsbee, maybe it’s time to accept that these proposals are not positive ideas.
