2020 Election: The Hidden Side of the Issues
Political discourse, particularly in an election year — and perhaps most especially in this election year — can become overheated and, frankly, unproductive. At Freakonomics Radio we try to take a clear-eyed look at the issues that are driving policy proposals and in some cases dividing the country. Among such topics we will be exploring in 2020 include the opioid crisis, the high cost of healthcare, gun violence, and the racial wealth gap. We’ve tackled other important social and economic issues over our 10 years of production, and many of the ideas and policy solutions discussed in those episodes remain relevant to our understanding of candidates’ proposals. We thought it would be helpful to gather all of our election-topic episodes in one place. So consider this page your go-to guide on the issues the candidates will be talking about — and that you will be voting on. We hope you find it helpful.
