Economist Robert Reich, the Clinton-era Labor Secretary and prominent Democratic pundit, gives a rousing talk on how the intersection of politics and economics led to the rise of Donald Trump and describes the concerns he shares with Republicans who fear that Trump's way of governing is harming American institutions. Reich is the featured speaker at UC Berkeley's Goldman School of Public Policy's Board of Advisors Dinner held in March 2017. Recorded on 03/29/2017.

Jennifer Granholm, the former Governor of Michigan and now on faculty at UC Berkeley, makes a rousing case for how electric driverless cars will lead to new industries, cleaner air, more mobility and a higher quality of life as commuters relax while in transit. Governor Granholm was the featured speaker in the Fall 2017 Board Dinner of the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley.  

Computer scientist Larry Smarr and osteopathic physician Michael Kurisu present a vision for healthcare that combines the best of allopathic and osteopathic medicine by using a more personalized, hands-on, systems-based approach to treating patients. They demonstrate this proof of concept with details on how Smarr diagnosed his own Crohn's disease by using blood and stool tests to track changes in his body. And when the symptoms became too severe, Smarr collaborated with his surgeon, Sonia Ramamoorthy, MD, to plan the operation based on 3D images of his organs created at his research institute, Calit2 at UC San Diego. Kurisu then introduces Project Apollo, a group of patients inspired by Smarr who are collecting their own data to develop personalized treatments for their particular conditions.

Behavioral economist Elizabeth Linos talks about how to implement good public policy by focusing on needs of the people who serve in government. In this conversation with Henry E. Brady, Dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, Linos argues that diversity in recruitment leads to better outcomes, particularly in law enforcement, and that burnout can be avoided if staffers are appropriately supported in their work environments.

In collaboration with the UC San Diego Center for Integrative Nutrition, the Berry Good Food Foundation convenes a panel of experts to discuss the rise of comprehensive medicine and nutritional healing to treat chronic disease and maintain general well-being.

When Congress reconvenes next year, Democrats will have a majority in the US House of Representatives. How will that change the dynamics in Washington?

Recorded on 11/20/2018.
