Gavin Newsom makes us wax nostalgic for the conservative days of Gov. Moonbeam, Jerry Brown), those of you who are David Baldacci fans may recall his 1997 book Total […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and talk show host Greg Knapp bring you three crazy martinis today. Jim and Greg differ with Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders on the issue of reinstating the voting rights of people with felony records. They also raise some concerns with Elizabeth Warren’s proposal to make public colleges tuition free and forgive $50,000 in student loans for Americans in households earning less than $100,000 a year. Lastly, they discuss Herman Cain’s withdrawal from consideration for a seat at the Federal Reserve.

In this AEI Events Podcast, Jay Powell of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System joins AEI’s Stephen D. Oliner to discuss the critical need to reform the housing finance system. During his remarks, Governor Powell emphasizes the potential systemic risk from a housing finance system that continues to be dominated by two large institutions, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both of which remain in conservatorship today.
