RealClear Radio Hour: Endangered Fishermen & Hudson Valley Extinction

This week’s RealClear Radio Hour brings a blizzard of content directly to your listening device. As those on the east coast recover from the dizzying storm, we think it’s vital to get right back into the policy swing with two very important guests.

First up this week is David Goethel, New England groundfisherman and board member of the Center for Sustainable Fisheries. David describes new regulations that even the government expects will bankrupt more than half the industry. Goethel and fellow East Coast fishermen are suing the Department of Commerce over the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) recent decision to make fishermen pay for private contractors who will serve as regulatory at-sea monitors.

My second guest this week is Karen Moreau. The President, CEO, and co-founder of the Foundation for Land and Liberty, whose family owns the last commercial mushroom farm in New York, discusses how production industries throughout the Hudson Valley are being forced out of business by government taxation, regulation, eminent domain seizures, confiscatory zoning laws, and fracking bans at the behest of downstate elites.

You can hear from both of our guests this week by listening to the full show as-aired on iTunes, or you can check out the individual podcasts hosted on YouTube and SoundCloud.

Make sure to check back next week for another episode of RealClear Radio Hour.
