This week we talk about political pessimism in popular polling, the return of the Malthusian environmentalists, the problem with Buy American policies in government subsidies, and the supposed need to “abolish capitalism” before we do anything about housing affordability. Our interview this week is with Brooke Medina of the John Locke Foundation. We discuss politics in North Carolina and how each state in the union can learn from the success and failure of the other 49. We cover taxes, education, free trade, occupational licensing, and economic opportunity in general.
