Show Notes

This week we talk about commuting via bicycle, regulatory reform legislation from Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), the new book on capitalism by historian Rainer Zitelmann, and a review of The Breakthrough Institute’s recent Ecomodernism 2023 conference. Our interview this week is with Commissioner Hester Peirce of the Securities and Exchange Commission, recorded earlier this year at the CEI Summit in Lake Tahoe. Our conversation covers financial regulation, climate change, principles of administrative law, and the SEC’s rulemaking on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing.
