GUEST: Gerald Friedman, Professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

Now that Bernie Sanders has begun to look like a front-runner to the commercial media, his polices are finally being discussed seriously. After all, with so many Americans from across demographic lines supporting him, there’s got to be something to his rhetoric. According to one economist, featured recently on CNN, “Under Sanders, Income and Jobs Would Soar.”

That analysis flies in the face of knee-jerk assessments of Sanders as a tax-and-spend Democrat who, as President, would leave Americans with even less disposable income than they now have.

Instead, Gerald Friedman has analyzed Sanders’ proposals comprehensively and concluded that “Median income would soar by more than $22,000. Nearly 26 million jobs would be created. The unemployment rate would fall to 3.8%.”
