PowerTalk -- Steve Forbes Focuses on the Economy, Taxes, Health Care and Obama

This week on PowerTalk, I am excited to feature someone who is truly informed to produce a great conversation that takes you behind the scenes and in the know. In addition, we get an answer to a question that many have been wondering, if not asking, based on what we???ve seen during the last few years: How would President Obama fare if he headed a publicly traded company?

Answering that question is none other than Steve Forbes, chairman and editor in chief of Forbes Media. I???m sure many of you have seen Steve on TV, read his widely followed ???Fact & Comment??? column in Forbes magazine or on, or consumed his book ???Freedom Manifesto: Why Free Markets Are Moral and Big Government Isn???t.???

As you might expect, Steve is a fantastic guest and we cover a lot of ground — the U.S. economy, what???s going on in Europe, growth vs. austerity, tax reform, Obamacare and big government. We also touch on how Steve has revamped the business model at Forbes, given the challenges faced by the traditional publishing business model. We had a great conversation, and I think you???ll really want to hear Steve???s answer to the preceding question and a number of others.
