Michael J. Boskin, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and the T. M. Friedman Professor of Economics at Stanford University, discusses the big-picture items that will determine the United States’ economic future. Boskin describes the type of society and economy our children and grandchildren might inherit, although noting that predictions are tough.  He went on to delineate the forces that will influence our economic future, including debt, taxes, energy, entitlement programs, globalization, and labor.
