In an interview with Pod Save America's Tommy Vietor airing Thursday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren explained why she — unlike fellow senator and 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders — has chosen to identify as a "Democrat capitalist," rather than a "democratic socialist."

"I see the value of markets and that they can produce a lot of good if they have rules. But let us all be clear: Markets without rules are theft and I am opposed to theft. There is a reason that the folks on Wall Street, the big CEOs, don't want me to even be in the Senate. ... Because I get how the system works and how it can work when it works right. And how these are the guys who are ripping it off and make it not work."

The dangerous instability of school re-openings

Schools across the country have flip-flopped between in-person and remote learning — and that instability is taking a toll on students' ability to learn and their mental health.

The big picture: While companies were able to set long timelines for their return, schools — under immense political and social strain — had to rush to figure out how to reopen. The cobbled-together approach has hurt students, parents and teachers alike.

Trump doesn't have a second-term economic plan

President Trump has not laid out an economic agenda for his second term, despite the election being just eight days away.

Why it matters: This is unprecedented in modern presidential campaigns, and makes it harder for undecided voters to make an informed choice.
