This week we talk about income and tax migration, refilling the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, the problem with federal crop insurance, and the recent CEO Summit at Liberty University. Our interview this week is with American Enterprise Institute senior fellow Jim Pethokoukis. Our conversation covers the issues raised in Jim’s new book, The Conservative Futurist: How to Create the Sci-Fi World We Were Promised. That includes economic growth, Star Trek, scientific innovation, cultural attitudes toward risk, and government funding for basic research.
