This week we talk about the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s legal fate, rising economic might in India, terrible federal policy on sugar, and how the rising cost of regulation is eliminating affordable homes and cars from the market. Our interview this week is with Competitive Enterprise Institute Research Fellow Sean Higgins. Our conversation covers the current United Auto Workers strike, the impact of the shift to electric vehicles, the future of the U.S. auto industry, and the history of federal labor regulation. Free the Economy is produced by Scooter Schaefer, Phoebe Gersten, and Ryan Kracinski.
