    How pollution shapes our economy and our health ft. Claudia Persico

    How pollution shapes our economy and our health ft. Claudia Persico

    How common is pollution in the United States, and what kind of practical impact does it have?  Economist Claudia Persico joins the podcast to discuss her new report for PPI's Innovation Frontier Project, titled "How Exposure To Pollution Quietly Shapes The American Workforce And Economy".  We discuss the ways in which pollution impacts our health, our economy, our children, and more.  We also discuss how pollution got to be so bad, what's in the current infrastructure bills dealing with pollution, and what sort of changes society should make to lessen the negative impact pollution has.
    Check out the report, from the Innovation Frontier Project and PPI!  https://innovationfrontier.org/how-exposure-to-pollution-quietly-shapes-the-american-workforce-and-economy/

    Cost Disease Socialism ft. Sam Hammond & Daniel Takash

    Why are so many crucial parts of a good life becoming more and more expensive over time?  And why is "Let's just use the government to pay for it" not a satisfactory response? Sam Hammond and Daniel Takash of the Niskanen Center join the podcast to talk about their new report "Cost Disease Socialism".  We discuss why education, childcare, healthcare and housing are rapidly increasing in cost, as well as the best ways to address the core issues causing these increases.

    What does a neoliberal infrastructure package look like?

    What does a neoliberal infrastructure package look like?

    With gigantic infrastructure bills making their way through Congress, Jeremiah outlines a vision of what a neoliberal infrastructure package should look like. Which types of 'hard infrastructure' are most valuable?  What about the 'soft infrastructure', or new social welfare spending?  Which parts of these bills deserve even more funding, and should any parts be dropped?  And how should these bills be paid for?  All that and more as the podcast lays down how neoliberals should think about infrastructure spending.

    Infrastructure Intrigue ft. Grace Panetta & Ben Ritz

    Infrastructure Intrigue ft. Grace Panetta & Ben Ritz

    What's going on with the infrastructure bills in Congress?  Business Insider's Grace Panetta and PPI's Ben Ritz join the podcast to talk about these giant infrastructure bills.  What's in the bills?  Why are they split in two?  Why are moderates and progressives fighting about the timing of the bills?  What's likely to actually end up in the final versions, and what are the chances these bills actually pass on the timeline that the Democrats have planned? We discuss all this and more!

    Defining Neoliberalism ft. Kevin Vallier

    Defining Neoliberalism ft. Kevin Vallier

    The age old question - how do we actually define neoliberalism?  Philosopher Kevin Vallier talks about his new entry in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy that attempts to set a firm definition of what neoliberalism is.  We discuss the core features that defined the neoliberalism of Hayek, Friedman and Buchanan, the differences between the original neoliberals and modern neoliberals, and the threats posed by modern illiberalism.
