The Weeds: will taxing the rich hurt growth — and will third parties save politics?

This episode of The Weeds tackles some of the pressing questions that keep nerds like us up at night. Like whether taxing the rich will hurt economic growth — and if there's space in the American political system for a third party.

The answers, as always, are complex — but instead of a restless night of wondering alone, now you can join us on the podcast. Also in this week's edition: A new working paper shows a surprising way to increase high school attendance.

As always, you can listen to us (or better yet, subscribe to us and rate us) on iTunes.
