This week we talk about the Federal Trade Commission’s takeover of AI policy, shareholder lawsuits against “woke” corporations, a burst of new business starts across America, and exciting headlines about scientific and medical research. Our interview this week is with Carrie Conko, Senior Vice President of the State Policy Network. We discuss communicating the ideas of liberty, changing policy at the state level, building a national political movement, and the magic of federalism. Free the Economy is hosted by Richard Morrison. Our producers are Scooter Schaefer, Phoebe Gersten, and Ryan Kracinski.
