Robert N. Pollin, Distinguished Professor in economics and co-director of the Political Economy Research Institute, says he is frustrated by both sides in the debate over Medicare for All. He says opponents exaggerate the job losses the program would create but backers also fail to be candid that there will be large numbers of people whose jobs will disappear. He says a plan to offer salaries and training for people displaced by the new system might be a way to deal with job losses. (The Fiscal Times, 5/24/19)
