    What the Advent of Radio Can Teach Us About Tech Regulation | Paul Matzko

    What the Advent of Radio Can Teach Us About Tech Regulation | Paul Matzko

    Last week, the Supreme Court heard arguments challenging Section 230, which gives tech companies immunity from content posted on their platforms. At the core of the debate is whether the government should take a more active role in policing how tech platforms moderate content.
    In the 1920s, America was in the midst of a similar debate as the radio gained rapid adoption and gave Americans access to an unprecedented variety of information over the airwaves.
    In this episode, Paul Matzko, historian and research fellow at the Cato Institute discusses the parallels between the current debate over tech regulation and attempts to regulate content over the radio, and how government oversight often led to content moderation that, at best, amplified the prejudices of those in power and, at worst, was used for outright political gain.
    Matzko's book, Radio Right: How a Band of Broadcasters Took on the Federal Government and Built the Modern Conservative Movement can be purchased here: https://www.amazon.com/Radio-Right-Broadcasters-Government-Conservative/dp/0190073225

    Debt, Austerity, and the Decline of a Global Superpower | Ben Studebaker

    Debt, Austerity, and the Decline of a Global Superpower | Ben Studebaker

    In the 19th century, Great Britain found itself saddled with debt after funding the Napoleonic Wars in continental Europe. In this episode, Ben Studebaker and Dan revisit how austerity measures taken by the British government ultimately led to its decline as a world power, how falling into the trap of "sensible spending" often forgoes investments for the future, and how the United States could fall into the same trap.

    The Economic Fallout of the Debt Ceiling Debate | Marc Goldwein

    The Economic Fallout of the Debt Ceiling Debate | Marc Goldwein

    Last week, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen announced the federal government would hit the debt ceiling limit sooner than expected, and "extraordinary measures" would need to be taken to keep the government functioning.
    In this episode, Marc Goldwein of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget discusses how a lack of congressional oversight has led to unchecked spending, the financial crisis that would follow a default, and the slow-motion catastrophe that will come if we don't tackle the issue of deficit spending now.
