Welcome back to the Free the Economy podcast. In this week’s episode we talk about Adam Millsap’s proposal to encourage abundance with a new world’s fair, Jim Pethokoukis’s refusal to hate on stock buybacks, analysis from Rich Lowry and Michael Brendan Dougherty (collected by Andrew Stuttaford) on the apparent decline of corporate virtue signaling, and Ryan Bourne’s take on the failures of Viktor Orban’s nationalist economic policy in Hungary. Our interview this week is with Competitive Enterprise Institute senior economist Ryan Young. We cover unemployment, economic growth, income inequality, and how to actually raise living standards for regular Americans.
