Jason Furman was one of President Obama's top economists, from the start of his campaign through the end of his presidency, and served as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers from 2013 through 2017. He joined me on the podcast to discuss his time in the White House, how he views the recession and subsequent recovery, and his forecast for economic growth going forward. We also cover America's productivity challenge, the pros and cons of the Big Tech firms, and a host of other questions from Twitter in a rapid-fire finale.

Now out of government, Jason Furman is currently a professor at the Harvard Kennedy School and a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.
