Episode Notes

In the Intro I explain, why in my mind the confirmation bias can be a driver for polarization.


We talk about  systemic #racism in Germany and the US. 

We talk about how to reduce the ethnic divide and how good the German and American #leadership is during this crisis. 

We talk about "Loosers of #globalization" and how the situation in the rust belt changed the political landscape fundamentally.  


Next Episode  will be with Stefan Kooths (IfW) on "Konjunkturpaket"/stimulus package.
