Michael Meeropol is professor emeritus of Economics at Western New England University, and the co-author of Principles of Macroeconomics: Activist vs. Austerity Policies. He is also a long-time WAMC commentator. But the topic that brings Mike back to WAMC's studios today is his late parents: Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. Here in the waning days of the Obama administration, Mike Meeropol and his brother are working to exonerate their mother.
