Consumer Choice, Biden’s EOs, & Practical Policy vs Regulation

I was invited on Andrew Donaldson’s podcast Heard Tell. It was great fun! Hope you tune in.

Yael Ossowski from the Consumer Choice Center helps us turn down the news cycle noise on President Biden’s latest Executive Order on “encouraging competition” from his latest piece breaking the EO from Real Clear Markets. Also, as someone who splits their time between Europe and America, we get Yael’s thoughts on how regulation affects travel and how debates over trains and airlines are a practical way to talk about government regulation and the need for consumer choice. Plus, we consider the last 18 months of many folks – perhaps for the first time in their lives – seeing restrictions in the way they go about their daily lives due to Coronavirus restrictions, and what consumers learned from the Covid-19 pandemic that might change their point of view going forward.
