How to remove racial bias from economics, according to AFL-CIO economist William Spriggs

William Spriggs says economists must do "a huge amount of work" to eliminate racial biases from their profession. The AFL-CIO's chief economist explains how the U.S. economy faces two crises: a health crisis from the coronavirus pandemic and a longer-term recession as millions of Americans have lost their jobs. Spriggs says the Federal Reserve needed to take aggressive action to help the economy and Congress should institute policies like a minimum wage to boost the working class.
