Goolsbee on Colbert

Austan Goolsbee, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors, was on Stephen Colbert last night. The interview ran over and the full interview, in three sections has been posted on the Colbert Nation website. Start with the first section and it should lead you to the other two. The whole thing is about 16 minutes long. Having become something of a Goolsbee watcher I think he does better on the White House white board than he does in settings like the Daily Show or Colbert, but those shows have a much greater viewship than the WHWB.

The topic of conversation was the debt ceiling. It was an interesting conversation and entertaining to watch. Colbert says he won't drink any water at Goolsbee's house. Watch to see why.
