Edward Alden (of the Council of Foreign Relations) and I spent over an hour last month talking about We Wanted Workers. The conversation will air this Saturday, November 12, at 10 pm as part of the After Words series on C-SPAN 2. I don’t like watching myself on TV or hearing myself on the radio so I don’t really know how the conversation turned out, but I’ve been told it is “terrific.”
Ted Alden, by the way, is the author of Failure to Adjust: How Americans Got Left Behind in the Global Economy, a brand new book that addresses many of the same themes as We Wanted Workers. I strongly recommend Ted’s book. I found it to be very informative and insightful.
