February 21, 2022, Audio: "Based on his Wall Street Journal Opinion column "Free Expression," Editor-at-Large Gerry Baker speaks every week with some of the world's leading writers, influencers and thinkers about a variety of subjects. Baker will welcome his guests from the worlds of politics, philosophy, and culture for wide-ranging dialogues that will enlighten and fascinate listeners. Episodes will be released each week. In this episode of "Free Expression," former U.S. Treasury Secretary Lawrence H. Summers tells Gerry Baker why he would have rather been wrong in predicting the high rate of inflation, why the risk of a recession is high, and why the idea of a federal gas tax holiday is "the ultimate policy gimmick.""
