AXIOS on HBO: Kristalina Georgeiva on the U.S. and Socialism (Season 2 Episode 6 Clip) | HBO


We’re in the middle,
as you know, of a crazy election cycle
here in the US, and there’s lots of people
accusing lots of other people of being socialists and–
What do you think when you– when you hear this rhetoric? -Been there, done it.
-(FELIX SALMON CHUCKLES) Don’t want to see it
ever again. -I–
-Could it happen
to this country? I– I don’t think so.
I think that, uh, the Americans are so pragmatic,
there’s no way that they would go for, uh,
the craziness of, uh, a mediocracy. And this is the danger of, uh–
of communism; that… it says there is somebody
who knows it all, and can tell everybody
how it should be done. Now, we live in a country
where– where the president is someone who thinks
he knows it all. Well, you– you, uh,
sell US short. -And also just to give credit–
-Despite the man
in the White House? No, that– Just to give credit to– to the, uh,
leadership here. The Unites States is one of
the better performing economies, and it is because it had
the bravery to use a tax reform
to spur more growth. Ah, so you’re in favor of
the Trump tax cuts? I’m in favor of countries
using their policy space to make the economy
more vibrant, and ultimately, uh– to make
the lives of people better. ♪ (MUSIC PLAYS, CONCLUDES) ♪
