This week, distinguished visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution and professor of economics at Brown University Glenn Loury joins the GoodFellows to discuss the Rittenhouse verdict and the controversies about race, the media, and guns that arose from the trial and the coverage of the verdict. They also discuss media coverage after Darrell Brooks allegedly drove a car into a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Finally, as this episode is top loaded with economists (Cochrane and Loury), the fellows debate the causes and some possible solutions to the supply-chain issues currently plaguing the country and the world.
