This week we cover venture capitalists fighting red tape, challenges to electric vehicle adoption, Americans sleeping on the job, a possible vaccine for chlamydia, and political bias at National Public radio. Our interview this week is with Alexander Hammond, author of Heroes of Progress: 65 People Who Changed the World. We talk about the men and woman who improved life for millions of their fellow human beings, from Johannes Gutenberg and James Madison to Frederick Douglass and Norman Borlaug. Free the Economy is produced and hosted by Richard Morrison and edited and co-produced by Ryan Kracinski.
