This week we cover how to rebuild after the Baltimore bridge collapse, legal challenges to the Securities and Exchange Commission’s new climate disclosure rule, and how China gets an edge by continuing to identify as a developing country. Our interview this week is with Liya Palagashvili of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. We’ll talk about jobs, full time vs. part time, contractors and gig work, California’s experiment with Assembly Bill 5, recent action from the Department of Labor, and why working mothers could really use more career flexibility. Free the Economy is produced and hosted by Richard Morrison and edited and co-produced by Ryan Kracinski.
