David Cay Johnston is America's top muck-raking journalist and author. He's also an economics and tax specialist. In 2001, David won the Pulitzer Prize for Beat Reporting. With three books on Donald Trump, David is arguably the world's leading authority on the former president.

David joins Economics Matters -- the Podcast to discuss:

  • The Big Cheat -- How Donald Trump Fleeced America and Enriched Himself and His Family (2021)

  • It's Even Worse Than you Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America (2018)

  • The Making of Donald Trump (2017)

WARNING! David pulls no punches in laying out the facts. So if you are convinced that...

  • The 2020 election was stolen.

  • Trump did not foment insurrection on January 6th, leading to the deaths/suicides of Capital Police and the near death of Vice President Pence and members of Congress.

  • Trump did not violate election law in Georgia or elsewhere.

  • Trump did not engage in corrupt financial practices through his company.

  • And that Trump did not purloin top secret\classified documents in violation of the Espionage Act and other laws.

Then...THIS PODCAST IS NOT FOR YOU. SKIP IT AND JOIN US NEXT TIME.

Our goal is not to make anyone uncomfortable. As you'll see through time, we will have guests of all political persuasions, but none with alternative realities or facts. Facts are hard things, not to be made up or presented without full documentation, precisely what David Cay Johnston delivers.

Economic Matters - The podcast is hosted by Laurence Kotlikoff and moderated by Alex Kotlikoff.
