Velocity Economics Part Two with Dr. Chris Draper

It's a common thread when business hears about an economic stimulus that offers more money to workers than to corporations. Here we continue our conversation with Dr. Chris Draper about his new book Velocity Economics. We also talk about the major headwinds that are forcing so many Americans to live paycheck to paycheck and not be able to create wealth and become more productive.
