Can Do: Social Policy Past & Present with John Roy Price
We don’t often think about the long-term influences of national social and domestic policy on the fabric of our society and our economic vitality. Programs put in place decades ago still guide our direction as a nation, and are the underpinnings of the continued public debate on what is the proper role of government in a democratic society.
Today on Can Do we are joined by author, historian, and savvy investment expert John Roy Price. He is a Rhodes Scholar, studied at Oxford, and received his law degree from Harvard. He was a managing director of Chase Manhattan Bank as well as president and CEO of Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh. He also served as senior domestic policy advisor to President Nixon.
In this episode of Can Do, John Roy Price will share candid insights into the Nixon White House and offer his opinion of how the agenda for America launched by Nixon has fared over the years. He will also talk about how the changing nature of our political parties and partisan discourse challenges the basic fabric of our economic livelihood and society in general.
