In this edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, managing editor of environment and climate news H. Sterling Burnett talks with John Charles. Charles is the president and CEO of Oregon’s preeminent free-market public policy institute, the Cascade Policy Institute.
John was one of the first to point out the fallacies in arguments made for modern urban planning including densification and smart growth. These policies have made it impossible for people to develop their properties as they wish and reduced the amount of affordable housing for the urban poor and even those of middle income. John discusses the green energy scandal that brought down Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber and how the federal government has mangled transportation in the U.S.
