The Bluegrass Institute is pleased to announce that Professors Eric Schansberg and Brian Strow, members of the Institute’s Board of Scholars, will be appearing on Kentucky Tonight this coming Monday, March 25th, live at 8 PM on KET.
Host Bill Goodman will interview the Bluegrass Scholars on the subject of the federal budget. To be discussed is how best to address the federal deficit, the much-hyped sequestration, and the pros and cons of proposed budgets from both the left and the right.
Previously, Dr. Schansberg appeared on Kentucky Tonight on a special edition of the program concerning the price of poverty in Kentucky. Schansberg discussed how educational choice – not funneling yet more taxpayer dollars into the welfare state – could be the solution to helping the poor out of their plight. Dr. Strow has also been on Kentucky Tonight multiple times, his most recent appearance being this past summer when he discussed how to stimulate job growth in Kentucky.
Others guests include Jason Bailey, director of the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy, and Chris Phillips, economics professor at Somerset Community College
