ben bernanke served eight years from 2006 as chairman of the federal reserve. he set monetary policy during the worst of the great recession. he chronicles the economic crisis and its aftermath in his memoir "the courage to act." the book is out in paperback today. he left the fed three years ago and is now a distinguished fellow in residence at the brookings institution. good morning, sir. >> good morning. >> to listen to the trump administration, a lot of their tax reform, a lot of their budgeting and furlt is based on economic growth.
8:12 am
they say they will get a 3.2 annual economic growth rate. is that achievable and sustainable? >> first, we want to do whatever we can to increase growth, pause growth has not been enough. but there are a lot of headwinds. we've got pretty slow growth in our labor force, pretty slow growth in productivity. so in order to get growth up, it's going to have to go a lot. >> achieve annuable and sustain? >> parorobably not. not unless we get lucky. >> you write that donald trump shocked the world. those are your words, by defeating hillary clinton with his dystopian assessment of the u.s. economy. what was dystopian about it? >> well, in some ways it was odd because in many ways the u.s. economy is doing pretty well. we've created 16 million jobs since 2009, the unemployment rate went from 10% down to 4.5%. housing market is coming back, lots of things are positive. and yet, mr. trump won the election by talking about 42%
8:13 am
unemployment and things like that. so it wasn't accurate. there's not 42% unemployment, but he was right there are some people being left behind. >> you write about that and talk about some consequential anythilonger term trends in the united states. increasing income and wealth equality. specifically the employment of men in this country. >> right. inequality. since the last 30, 35 years, the income distribution has been spreading out, more people at the top, fewer in the middle, more at the bottom. you mentioned participation, which means that you've got a lot of young men between ages 25 to 54. in the past they would have been working at a regular job, but today about 12% of those men are not working or even looking for work, so those kinds of trends which are very long standing, they're not recent, have left behind a lot of people. that's the kind of concern that donald trump tapped into. >> you write this too, his

ideological influence are diverse and sometimes contradictory. he just recently released his tax reform plan. are you encouraged by what you see? >> it's a complicated political situation because he's got on the one hand traditional republicans who are anti-deficit, pro free trade, for example. then you've got populists who are, for example, against free trade. so he's got these different, you know, trains of thought going on. >> at the same time, yeah. are you encouraged by what you see? >> well, it's pretty early. i wrote in my book that i thought that the markets got really excited after the election, expecting rapid changes in fiscal policy, regulation, so on. i wrote in my book that i thought because of these different political influences and the fact that even within the republican party there was a lot of disagreement, i argued it would take a long time for this stuff to be put in place. i think it's quite early yet. there's not a whole lot in place at this point. >> in terms of regulation, would it be good to bring glass

stegall back? >> it separated commercial banks, ordinary lending banks from investment banks which invest in markets and so on. it's become kid of a symbol of the financial crisis but i don't think it really had much to do with the crisis, because you had regular commercial banks getting into trouble making bad loans and you had investment banks getting into trouble in the markets. putting them together, taking them apart, didn't make that much difference. >> what's the best thing to do to deal with income inequality and the plight of the middle class, is it simply economic growth? >> economic growth is important. since it doesn't lift all boats equally, it's not enough. what we're missing in the country is enough upward mobility. if you were born in the bottom quarter of the income distribution, if you are a lower working class person or you have single parent family, those kind of problems, it's much harder for you to get up to the professional upper levels of our society. so what we need is a whole raft of things, including pre-k

intervention, better schooling, apprenticeships, stronger college programs, a whole variety of things to get people better trained. >> you and i spoke when your book first came out and i really like this afterward. i think it explains so much. one of the things you talk about, trump, the president, has promised to bring back manufacturing and mining jobs to make america great. is that realistic to bring back those jobs? >> new york cio, it's not reali. there's a lot of reasons why coal mining is declining. we have cheap natural gas and many other things going on. so it's better instead of trying to go back to the past and reproduce 1960s assembly lines, it would be much better to build the industries of the future, services, technology, finance, the whole range of things that we do do well. >> and you talk about how that change is really what's upsetting the electorate, this change of how the economy has to change. >> people miss what they had, but you have to look forward and
