Productivity is a Policy Choice (with Preston Mui)

Preston Mui, Senior Economist at Employ America, recently authored a report titled “The Dream of the 90s is Alive in 2024: How Policy Can Revive Productivity Growth.” The report offers a blueprint for policymakers seeking to emulate the successes of an unparalleled period of productivity in the United States. Mui joins us to examine and reflect on the policy decisions which drove the strong productivity growth of the 1990s, and he also identifies dynamic new strategies for revitalizing American production in the present.
