This week on Banter, Andrew Biggs joined the show to assess the House Republicans' recently released Tax Cuts and Jobs Act plan and to debunk the myth of the "retirement crisis." He also discussed his work on the The Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico to develop the island's economy. In addition to his role on the board, Biggs is a resident scholar at AEI whose work focuses on Social Security reform, state and local government pensions, and public-sector pay and benefits. He participated in a seminar at AEI that analyzed the economic prospects of Puerto Rico post-Hurricane Maria. The link below will take you to the full event video.
