"White House Burning: The Founding Fathers, Our National Debt, and Why It Matters to You" - Planet Money Interview

There is an interesting interview with Simon Johnson, a co-author of "White House Burning: The Founding Fathers, Our National Debt, and Why It Matters to You" on NPR's Planet Money podcast.  In the book and the interview, Johnson argues that we need to let taxes rise to pay for the social services that most people want.  He calls his message an "unpalatable truth" that is not making friends on either the left or the right.
