In the 2016 election, Donald Trump campaigned on a message of nationalism and economic populism. Since then, some Republicans have warmed to industrial policy, trade restrictions, and trust-busting. The dynamic, global economy, populists claim, has enriched coastal elites while leaving “real” America behind. In this episode of “Political Economy,” I’m joined by Ryan Streeter to chat about the importance of a dynamic economy.

Ryan is a senior fellow and director of domestic policy studies here at AEI. Earlier this month, he published the essay “Dynamism as a Public Philosophy” in the winter 2022 issue of National Affairs.
