Austan Goolsbee is the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors under the Presidency of Barack Obama. Goolsbee doesn't have a book to promote. Instead, he was speaking about the present state and future of the US economy (so the fact that there was any laughter during this interview is impressive.)
Goolsbee speaks to the Barack Administration's goals to grow human capita,l physical capital and innovation/productivity. And, also, how they plan to kick the future's ass.
