The Brian Lehrer Show-July 17, 2023

Coming up on today's show:

  • Richard Haass, American diplomat, former longtime president of the Council on Foreign Relations (now president emeritus) and the author of The Bill of Obligations: The Ten Habits of Good Citizens (Penguin Press, 2023), reflects on his time leading CFR, and talks about his analysis that the current biggest threat to the United States is not from Russia or China, but from within.

  • A new study of traffic stops by state police in New Jersey found "strong empirical evidence that NJ-SP is engaged in enforcement practices that result in adverse treatment towards minority motorists." WNYC/Gothamist reporter covering race and justice Arya Sundaram and Rev. Dr. Charles Boyer, pastor of Greater Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church in Trenton and the founder of Salvation and Social Justice, talk about the finding and the attorney general's plan to address the disparities.

  • The ‘Great Resignation’ phenomenon -- which saw tens of millions of Americans changing jobs over a two-year span, and characterized a moment of worker empowerment -- seems to be coming to an end. Ben Casselman, economics reporter at The New York Times, discusses why this trend is occurring, what this means for the future of employee/employer power dynamics in the United States and what this tells us about the state of the economy.

  • At the end of June, New Jersey lawmakers voted to redraw the state tourism map and create a “Central Jersey” region — now it just needs Governor Phil Murphy’s approval. Listeners weigh in whether they think Central Jersey exists and if so, where it starts and ends.
