Paul Krugman responded to viewer telephone calls about liberal politics and his book, The Conscience of a Liberal, published by W.W. Norton. In his book he argues that America’s post-war middle-class society was not the product of a free-market economy but was created by the policies of the Roosevelt administration of strengthening labor unions and taxing the rich to redistribute wealth. 

Mr. Krugman was interviewed aboard the BookTV Bus at the Miami Book Fair International. The program opened with a video clip of him speaking about his book earlier in the day. close
