As the lockdowns ease up, it’s time to take stock of the damage done by the pandemic and to look towards recovery. So to discuss today’s surprisingly strong jobs report — as well as the recovery work that policymakers have ahead of them — I’m speaking today with Michael Strain.

Michael is the director of economic policy studies and the Arthur F. Burns Chair in Political Economy here at AEI. Previously, he worked for the US Census Bureau and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. He is the author of the recently released The American Dream Is Not Dead: (But Populism Could Kill It).
