Catalonia’s Separatist Movement And Tax Cut Proposals

First we talk to Edgar Illas, Director of Catalan the Hispanic Literature Program at the University of Indiana, Bloomington, about the recent events around the Referendum for Catalonia’s Independence. Our host, Philip Maldari, filling in for Mitch Jeserich, is questioning the motivations of this movement and its issues and consequences.


In the second part of today’s show, we are in conversation with William K. Black, Associate Professor of Economics and Law at the University of Missouri, Kansas City, about Trump’s tax cut proposals.
