In episode 26, we talk about a survey on work trends for finance bros, Delta’s questionable bid to become the first carbon neutral airline, the Economic Innovation Group’s case for high-skilled immigration, and the psychological reasons we (wrongly) tend to think everything in the world is getting worse. Our interview this week is with Taylor Barkley of the Center for Growth and Opportunity. We discuss public attitudes toward big tech companies, safety for kids online, the poor cybersecurity job the government does, and who is allowed to moderate our social media content. Free the Economy is hosted by Richard Morrison. Our producers are Scooter Schaefer, Phoebe Gersten, and Ryan Kracinski.
