How will economists look back on the economy of the 2010s — as the longest economic expansion in US history, or as a period in which the US was stuck below three percent growth for ten years? And looking to the future, how might population growth, trade, Big Tech, and new innovations all affect America’s capacity for economic growth? On today’s podcast, I discuss these questions and much more with Professor Peter Klenow.

Peter Klenow is the Ralph Landau Professor in Economic Policy at Stanford University, as well as the Gordon Moore Senior Fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research. In the past, Klenow served as a senior economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. His work focuses on the macroeconomics of growth, productivity, and prices.
