John Nothdurft and Donny Kendal present episode #69 of the In The Tank Podcast. This weekly podcast features (as always) interviews, debates, and roundtable discussions that explore the work of think tanks across the country. The show is available for download as part of the Heartland Daily Podcast every Friday. Today’s podcast features work from Reason, the Heartland Institute, and PERC.
Policybot Featured Work of the Week
This week’s featured work comes from Reason. Straying from serious policy studies and research, Donny and John share a new video produced by Reason magazine called the Libertarian Gift Guide. This humorous YouTube video is a must-watch.
Other Think Tank Works
In this segment, Donny and John share their public policy wishlists. Each offer three items and go into depth on one.
Donny’s #1 item is a return to the gold standard. Using a new policy report by The Heartland Institute titled “Monetary Policy: The Gold Standard,” (part of the Roadmap for the 21st Century series) Donny makes the case for why we would be better off if our monetary policy was constrained by the gold standard.
