With coronavirus benefit payments in the U.S. set to expire imminently and Congress unable to agree a new aid deal, many Americans face an uncertain financial future. Nobel prize-winning economist Paul Krugman joins Christiane Amanpour to discuss the fight to protect American prosperity and the "body blow" that political inaction deals to ordinary citizens. Then, Russ Feingold, president of the American Constitution Society and Paul Rosenzweig, founder of Red Branch Consulting, give their take from either side of the political aisle on Attorney General Bill Barr’s testimony this week. And our Walter Isaacson speaks to Eduardo Padrón, president emeritus of Miami Dade College, about the imperative for diversity and flexibility in education, and the systemic inequalities that the coronavirus pandemic has exposed in America's collegiate system.
