#020 | Perverse Incentives: How The Government Worsened The Opioid Crisis & More (Featuring Casey Mulligan)

This interview with Former White House CEA Chief Economist Casey Mulligan explores a number of problems created by poorly designed government policy, ranging from publicly-subsidized prescription opioids worsening narcotic addictions and death, to regulation that helps powerful special interests squeeze out competition.
 
The conversation touches on perverse incentives affecting our trade, energy, immigration, and welfare policy, leading to dysfunctional outcomes for the American people.
 
This is the second in a series of interviews that Paige will conduct with policy experts who break from the traditional Washington orthodoxy and who offer a variety of solutions that we can consider to revive our country's prosperity and promise.
