In episode 23, we talk about conservatives defending the D.C. swamp, Andrew Stuttaford’s warning about green land grabs, a new Heartland Institute report on the threats from ESG investing, and the American Express survey on small business financial confidence. Our interview this week is with economist Richard Salsman of Duke University. We discuss the origins of capitalism, the morality of profit-seeking, how students are learning economics, and the democratization of investing. Free the Economy is hosted by Richard Morrison. Our producers are Scooter Schaefer, Phoebe Gersten, and Ryan Kracinski.
