Terry Anderson On The John Batchelor Show (29:03)

interview with Terry Andersonvia John Batchelor Show
Tuesday, May 26, 2015

Hoover fellow Terry Anderson discusses his (and Hoover fellow Henry Miller's) National Review article "How Taxing Organic Products Could Solve California’s Water Shortage." Anderson notes that California’s thirst for water won’t be significantly reduced until consumers are faced with a more realistic price for the “clear gold.” In that spirit, we propose a revenue-neutral tax on all organic products — food, linens, clothing, pillows, tobacco, etc. Taxation would reduce the demand for water-wasting organic products relative to non-organic alternatives, and thereby reduce some of the pressure on California’s dwindling water supplies.

Bent Flyvbjerg of Oxford University speaks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the political economy of megaprojects--massive investments of a billion dollars or more in infrastructure or technology.

Flyvbjerg explores the reasons for the poor predictions and poor performance of giant investment projects and what might be done to improve their effectiveness.

Friday, May 22, 2015

Hoover fellow Paul Gregory discusses his Forbes piece, “A Russian Crisis With No End In Sight, Thanks To Low Oil Prices And Sanctions.” Gregory notes that Russia’s fate depends on economic factors beyond its control (energy prices and gas markets) and on Putin’s continued international adventurism, which he is loath to abandon for fear of regime change. Putin can no longer keep his promise to the Russian people of prosperity and stability.

Henry I. Miller On The John Batchelor Show

interview with Henry I. Millervia The John Batchelor Show
Friday, May 22, 2015

Hoover fellow Henry Miller discusses his Defining Ideas piece, “Bureaucrats Battle Science.” Miller notes that regulatory incentives and disincentives are potent. The vastly inflated development costs caused by over-regulation are the primary reason that more than 99 percent of genetically engineered crops that are being cultivated are commodity crops grown at huge scale—corn, cotton, canola, soy, alfalfa, and sugar beets.
