PLANS TO abolish the Minneapolis police department after the death of George Floyd are running into opposition, as Jon Fasman reports from the city.

John Prideaux, The Economist’s US editor, hosts with Charlotte Howard, New York bureau chief, and Washington correspondent Jon Fasman. Runtime: 39 min
