In episode 16, we talk corporate mega-mergers that turned out for the best, political meddling with the Federal Reserve’s inflation policy, “woke” language games and spontaneous order, and the future of clean and safe nuclear energy. Our interview this week is with Dominic Pino of National Review. We review the situation with the Silicon Valley Bank bailout, financial regulation, the state of organized labor, and the ongoing fight between populists and libertarians in the world of economic policy. Free the Economy is hosted by Richard Morrison. Our producers are Scooter Schaefer, Phoebe Gersten, and Ryan Kracinski.
