July 24, 2020
Heartland's Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 253 of the In The Tank Podcast. After getting into an impromptu conversation about COVID-19 and a weird Andrew Cuomo poster, the ITT crew discusses Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards. This set of criteria, while intending to incentivize companies to be “green,” has some major macroeconomic implications.

Dave Racer, MLitt, warns that the U.S. health care system is a recession away from collapsing the private health insurance market. Many politicians say it is time for government to take over. Instead, Dave Racer (DaveRacer.com) shows how to connect the dots among the five key health care elements: patients, employers, providers (physicians, hospitals, and other providers), payers, and government. Dave describes a new, patient-friendlier marketplace, one in which the patient will drive the market, demanding competitive pricing with improved quality and outcomes. In this new marketplace, secrecy in pricing will be eliminated, patients will choose their providers instead of the insurance company, physicians will be able to go independent, hospital prices will fall, and new insurance companies will enter the market. And more, much more.

Shellenberger is on the show to talk about his "controversial" new book "Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All." The book destroys the climate alarmist narrative that the world is coming to an end and that wind and solar are the future of energy in the United States. He also discusses how climate alarmism has become the new secular religion that he once observed, and his journey to the side of reason, science, and realism.

Christina Herrin of the Heartland Institute and Naomi Lopez and Christina Sandefur of the Goldwater Institute discuss the need to excel patient freedom and get FDA out of the way. During a crisis, it is crucial that doctors and patients are in control of their health care, not the government. Currently, there is no approved treatment for COVID-19, but there are potential options for patients to use off label medicine that have already been approved by FDA for treating other ailments as long as FDA doesn't act as a barrier.
