Noam Scheiber, “The Escape Artists: How Obama’s Team Fumbled the Recovery” (Simon & Schuster, 2012)

In his new book, The Escape Artists: How Obama’s Team Fumbled the Recovery (Simon & Schuster, 2012), Noam Scheiber, Senior Editor of The New Republic, presents a behind the scenes look at the members of President Obama’s economics team and their attempts to deal with the financial crisis.
In our interview, we talked about internecine battles inside the White House, the contrast between experienced staffers and outside perspectives, and whether and when Scheiber’s anonymous sources will be revealed at some date in the distant future. Read all about it, and more, in Scheiber’s juicy new book.
