The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Nate Myers present episode 294 of the In the Tank Podcast, recorded live at noon CT on Thursday, May 13. The ITT crew talk about America suddenly facing one crisis after another, and talk about how they could (and should) have been prevented. They tackle the unemployment crisis, where (shocker) people getting “stimulus” checks and extended unemployment benefits find sitting at home a better option than returning to work. They talk about the inflation crisis, where (shocker) the government pouring trillions of “free money” into the economy has real-world ramifications. And they talk about the gas crisis, where (shocker) the Biden administration stopping fracking and canceling the Keystone XL pipeline — as well as the Russian hack that crippled the most-important pipeline on the east coast — has a real-world effect on gas prices.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Samantha Fillmore are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 280 of the In The Tank Podcast. It seems lately like people who say they are conservative are starting to stray on issues that used to be basic – minimum wage, stimulus payments, and the national debt to name a few. The ITT crew explores this idea, discuss what has caused this, and talks about the path to normalcy (if there is one). Also, they discuss a proposal for the Biden administration to create a “Reality Czar” to police fake news in society – a truly dystopian concept.

Heartland Institute Vice President Jim Lakely and Editor Chris Talgo talk about the economic freedom angle of The Great Reset with Darren Brady Nelson, economist for Liberty Works. They talk about how the COVID-19 pandemic has set the table for The Great Reset, which aims to replace free-market "shareholder" capitalism with command-and-control "stakeholder" capitalism. Nelson also touches on the role cryptocurrency might play in thwarting The Great Reset, whether Americans will cede their freedom in the face of this global push, and if it will be imposed more by global corporations than by governments.

The event is a part of AFP’s national “Unrig the Economy” campaign, a multiyear, multimillion-dollar effort dedicated to creating a stronger economy by leveling the playing field for all. Americans for Prosperity-Illinois (AFP-IL) is co-hosting an “Unrig the Economy” dinner event with the Heartland Institute in Arlington Heights on September 19, 2019. The policy discussion will focus on why Congress should not bring back tax extenders or reauthorize the Export-Import Bank – two blatant examples of corporate welfare. PANELISTS: Moderator: Brian Costin, Deputy State Director of AFP - IL Russ Latino, Vice President - Economic Development Portfolio at Americans for Prosperity Adam Andrzejewski - CEO & Founder of OpenTheBooks.com Frank Lasee, President, Heartland Institute “Illinoisans know better than most [how] government can rig the game in favor of special interests. Often, economic success is decided by political favoritism and who you know. Instead of rigging our economy by picking winners and losers lawmakers should work to create equality of opportunity where everyone is treated the same by federal, state or local government,” said Brian Costin, AFP-IL Deputy State Director. “This event centers on how we can start to create an environment, in Illinois and nationally, where people succeed based on the value they create for consumers rather than hiring the best lobbyists to rig the system in their favor.”

Barrack Obama called income inequality the trying issue of our time. Yaron Brook, chairman of the board at the Ayn Rand Institute, completely disagrees. Is income inequality the problem, or is it cronyism and systems the keep the poor from working up the economic ladder?
