32. They are talking about this specific appearance
If you want to know his stance on economic justice, go here:

Here is more info on his top economic advisor.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austan_Goolsbee
The Democrats, besides talking about a broader range of subjects, also have the freshest face among the top campaign advisers Barack Obamas lead economist, Austan Goolsbee, a 37-year-old star professor at the University of Chicago (who writes a monthly column for The New York Times). The two men met when Mr. Obama was teaching at the law school there, and they both seem to favor achieving Democratic goals through market-oriented policies. As Mr. Goolsbee has written: Moral exhortation doesnt change peoples behavior. Prices do. Given their respective professions, the two are also more irreverent than you may expect: Mr. Goolsbee was once a member of an improvisational comedy group.

But the biggest reason he got the job may simply be that many Democratic economists were already loyal to Hillary Clinton. Her team is dominated by former aides from her husbands administration like Roger Altman, an investment banker, and Gene Sperling, who worked his way up from serving as a campaign aide in 1992 to becoming a senior White House adviser. Dick Gephardt, the former House Democratic leader, is also working with Mrs. Clinton.
