This week we talk about Warren Buffet’s electric vehicle pessimism, sky-high school funding in New York City, worker job satisfaction numbers, and why we’re in the top 1% of all podcasts. Our interview this week is with economist, consultant, podcaster, think tanker, and former White House economic policy advisor Vance Ginn. We discuss the strength of the union, competition between states for people and capital, the debt ceiling negotiations, confusing unemployment numbers, and more. Free the Economy is hosted by Richard Morrison. Our producers are Scooter Schaefer, Phoebe Gersten, and Ryan Kracinski.
