The Stock Market is NOT The Economy

December 6th, 2019
We need to stop judging the economy based on how well it’s doing for rich people. So what metrics should we use? A group of economists and researchers developed a new metric– the Job Quality Index, and it may just provide the answer. Civic Ventures President Zach Silk is joined by former Washington State Legislator Jessyn Farrell to break down this week's most consequential news in politics.

This video is a part of a weekly live series hosted by Civic Action. As engaged activists we know you're getting information from a thousand different sources all at once. It can be challenging to pick what's worth your focus, time, and most importantly your advocacy. That's why Zach Silk and Jessyn Farrell agreed to take a half hour and help answer your questions, and make sense of all the white noise. Together, they've got decades of experience writing policy, managing campaigns, and challenging the political status quo.
