Better Know a Think Tank
In this weeks segment, Donny and John welcome Elizabeth Stelle, Director of Policy Analysis at the Commonwealth Foundation. Elizabeth joins the show to talk about the Commonwealth Foundation as well as what’s going on in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania has just ended a long budget battle that lasted over 250 days.
Featured Work of the Week
This week’s featured work is a report from the Mercatus Center titled “The Impact of Federal Regulation on the 50 States.” The report gives all-encompassing look into federal regulations. The report quantifies the cost of all the federal regulations have on the individual states. The report shows which states are impacted the most and least. Find out where your states ranks.
In the World of Think Tankery
Today Donny and John talk about an article published by the Pelican Institute titled “Governor Edwards, Please Don’t Make Me Regret Moving to Louisiana.” The article highlights the factors that should be considered when deciding to live in a state. The article also contains a map from the Tax Foundation that shows which states gained and lost wealth due to interstate migration.
