This week Need to Know is launch a new series: “American Voices,” featuring a group of essayists with many different points of view. To begin, we hear from Reihan Salam, author of The National Review’s domestic policy blog “The Agenda,” and co-author of the book “Grand New Party: How Republicans Can Win the Working Class and Save the American Dream.” Salam explains why he believes more competition is the key to turning our economy around.
“Because unemployment is so stubbornly high, we tend to think that job creation should be our highest priority. But there is good job creation and there is bad job creation,” Salam says. “By growing our most competitive sectors, we’ll make all Americans better off.”
