Former Obama, Clinton Official Pens Book On 'Economic Dignity'

The U.S. economy's shakiness brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the civil uprising calling for racial justice and equality have left the country grappling with what its role is at home and abroad.

But lingering uniquely American issues remain amid the chaos, such as the goal of the country's economy, and how success should be measured. They are explored in the new book Economic Dignityby Gene Sperling, the only person ever to serve as director of the National Economic Council under two different presidents (Obama and Clinton).

Sperling joins Cincinnati Edition to talk about the country's current economic situation, its future and how the racial wealth gap and racism in the criminal justice system blocks opportunity for many.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
