Challenging an Economic Myth: The Economy is Not the Weather

Heather McGhee challenges prevailing economic myths at a meeting organized by Open Buffalo at Asbury Hall.

Specifically, Heather dismisses the myth that we are helpless to do anything about the state of the economy. "The economy is not the weather. It is not something that is outside our control." Instead, a more apt metaphor is the economy as a game. The advantaged control the rules, deciding who gets ahead and who does not.
