After the Democratic Party's disastrous night in Iowa, socialists everywhere are wondering whether there's a conspiracy to keep Bernie off the ticket in November. And is there any reason for Americans to believe the same people who can't build a well-functioning app should control our entire economy and health care system? Donald Kendal and Justin Haskins answer these questions and more on this episode of the podcast.

Heartland's Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Ed Hudgins in episode 228 of the In The Tank Podcast. A second, third, and fourth Bernie Sanders campaign staffer has been caught saying radical and extreme things. This extremism is being fueled by the perceived need to take immediate action to save the planet. But, how high is the social cost of carbon dioxide? The In The Tank crew takes a look at a new study that shows we may be benefitting from a gradual warming environment. In the second half, Ed Hudgins joins the show to discuss the potential ramifications of increased automation and artificial intelligence in society and the economy.

President Trump traveled to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week and he had a lot of good economic news from the United States to share: record low unemployment, millions of new jobs, a booming energy sector, a new trade deal with China and a replacement for NAFTA. Trump also, remarkably, took on the “prophets of [climate] doom and their predictions of the apocalypse,” which have failed to come true for more than 50 years. Director of Communications Jim Lakely and Research Director Ed Hudgins break down some highlights from Trump’s economic speech, and how he was the only voice of reason at a conference filled with climate alarmists.

Heartland Institute President Frank Lasée was on WTTW's "Chicago Tonight" program on January 21, 2020 to debate Chicago Alderman Matt Martin on his resolution declaring a "climate emergency" in the city of Chicago. "Chicago Tonight" is the local PBS affiliate's flagship news program. Frank pointed out that forcing Chicago to undertake expensive measures to "fight climate change" are not just unnecessary, but an egregious waste of resources for a city running nearly a $1 billion budget deficit. He also debunked the claim that carbon dioxide is a "pollutant" and that changes in the level of Lake Michigan has anything to do with human activity.

Heartland's Donald Kendal, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 224 of the In The Tank Podcast. Humanity flourished in the 2010s. Extreme poverty was cut in half, the child mortality rate has reduced by a third, and 28% of all wealth was produced. But does that translate to life in America? Considering rising health care costs, college costs, housing prices, and the general rise in cost of living, we explore the question: is life getting harder in America.
