In episode 24, we talk about central bank digital currencies, bankers backing off of ESG claims, avoiding the mistakes of public housing, and new research of inequality and progressivity. Our interview this week is with economist Scott Lincicome of the Cato Institute. We discuss trade tariffs, empowered workers, returning to the 1950s, and working-class wages. Free the Economy is hosted by Richard Morrison. Our producers are Scooter Schaefer, Phoebe Gersten, and Ryan Kracinski.
