Special Episode: CASSE’s Take on the Insurrection at the Capitol
Jan 07, 2021
Brian Czech

On Wednesday, January 6, 2021, a group of far-right radicals stormed the U.S. Capitol to prevent the congressional certification of Joseph R. Biden as president. At first glance, the insurrection had nothing to do with GDP growth, right? Yet further reflection leads us to connect some overlooked dots. A Trump-like obsession with growth is part of a broader mentality that too readily incorporates reckless, selfish, and destructive behavior and politics. Brian Czech explains the connections in this first special episode of The Steady Stater.
