Acton Line podcast: Green New Deal fantasies; Defending Andrew Jackson

On this episode, we bring John Baden onto the show. A rancher in Bozeman Montana, Baden has co-founded several organizations dedicated to free market environmentalism including the Foundation for Research on Economics and Environment, an organization dedicated to implementing “an economic way of thinking consistent with a society of free and responsible individuals.”  Baden will be addressing the environmental concerns raised in the Green New Deal and show how free markets can tackle them. After that, Acton’s Dan Hugger speaks with Bradley J. Birzer, a professor of history at Hillsdale College, to talk about the life of Andrew Jackson.
