Decode DC misses a mark
Decode DC is generally a very good podcast. They do a good job trying to report deeper than is typical with political coverage.
However, the recent episode that described the fight over the stimulus doesn’t do justice to critics. The Untold Story of the Stimulus. Seabrook says that economists “across the spectrum” were recommending a big stimulus bill. This paints the Democrats recommending 1.7T in stimulus as the reasonable ones, and their opponents as totally unreasonable. I don’t think this does justice to the many economists who opposed the spending. For one example (taking from a recent post, not at the time), see Scott Sumner.
