Freeing the Economy: Megan McArdle
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 24 and remain closed on Thursday, December 25 in observance of the Christmas holiday.
Time magazine’s David Von Drehle and Bloomberg blogger Megan McArdle discuss Freeing the Economy in the third offering of the Dateline: Washington series.
McArdle is a Washington, D.C.-based journalist writing mostly about economics, finance, and government policy from a moderate libertarian (or classical liberal) perspective. In recent months, she has blogged about government-backed mortgages, the higher education bubble, and the labor movement.
She has worked for The Economist, The Atlantic, Newsweek/The Daily Beast, and Bloomberg View. Von Drehle is editor-at-large for Time magazine and a Kansas City resident.
This series is made possible by Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation Legacy Fund grants to the Kansas City Public Library and the Truman Library Institute.
