In this week’s episode we talk about commuting via bicycle, regulatory reform legislation from Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), the new book on capitalism by German historian Rainer Zitelmann, and a review of The Breakthrough Institute’s recent Ecomodernism 2023 conference. Our interview this week is with Commissioner Hester Peirce of the Securities and Exchange Commission, recorded earlier this year at the CEI Summit in Lake Tahoe. Our conversation covers financial regulation, climate change, principles of administrative law, and the SEC’s rulemaking agenda on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing.
