In his new book, "Thank You for Being Late," Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman examines the social and economic challenges posed by a world where everything is getting faster. He writes about workers’ anxiety as machines perform increasingly sophisticated tasks, and shares his prescription for more sustainable economic growth.  We speak with the longtime foreign affairs columnist about the book and what a Trump administration might mean for the global economy.

Guests:
