Show Notes

Since the pandemic, eBikes sales have exploded with 3.8 million units sold in 2020, a 23% increase year over year. With more eBikers on the roads and the trails, there is also more novice riders who are unfamiliar with the 'rules of the road' and 'biking etiquette.' 

 

eBikers can know the rules of the road by visiting their state's department of motor vehicle website, and can learn bike etiquette by riding with experienced bikers. In episode #178, learn more about the rules of the road per the California Vehicle Code and a former triathlete.

What Keynesian Economics Would Say About AB5

In urban spaces throughout the country, app-based ridesharing platforms like Uber and Lyft have a greater impact on the economy than what meets the eye. For years, these services were rarely regulated, and there were minimal protections in place for individuals driving for the companies. In recent years, states such as New York and California have become vocal in their crusades to regulate the app-based economy, including California’s keystone statute Assembly Bill 5. In the previous episode of this two-part series, host Dennis Wisco introduced key policies at play and delved into the Classical Economic interpretation of the impact of California Assembly Bill 5 on the economy. Listen in as Dennis outlines key elements of Keynesian Economics, and how it applies to the regulation of the gig economy. Keynesian economic theory is a school of thought developed by British economist John Maynard Keynes in the 1930s that supposes the totality of spending in the economy, and its impact on output and inflation. Essentially, Keynes argued that a healthy economy depends on the government to regulate, balance, and manage economic opportunity. In his 1936 book, ​The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money​, Keynes discusses the idea of “perfect competition,” which exists in a close-to-ideal economic society. Under this model, the government is flooded with money in order to create economic opportunities. Therefore, the Keynesian model argues against the California App-Based Driver’s Regulation Initiative in order to keep AB-5 in effect and thus allow the government to continue to regulate the gig-based economy’s labor protections as they relate to app-based drivers. Tune in to this episode to hear excerpts from Keynes’ book and how this theory applies to current policy. Dennis ...

School Choice Works Better for Teachers with Neal McCluskey

With 18 states adopting school choice, the most populous state in the union may also be on the verge of adoption. California is undergoing a recall election and the leading candidate to replace Gavin Newsom is Larry Elder. Edler is an outspoken advocate of school choice. So what is it? How does it work? What is a historical perspective on it? How does critical race theory affect school choice? Neal McCluskey is the Director of the Center for Educational Freedom at the libertarian think tank, Cato Institute. He provides an 'a to z' explanation of why school choice works better for teachers, starting with defining school choice to why the stakes are so high with public schools adopting critical race theory.     Episode Notes:   Public Schooling Battle Map -- https://www.cato.org/education-fight-map   Cato Institute -- https://www.cato.org/ Texas House Bill 150, Family Educational Relief Program -- https://capitol.texas.gov/tlodocs/872/billtext/pdf/HB00150I.pdf#navpanes=0      For bonus, ad-free episodes that deliver actionable insights, become a paid-NYFE subscriber for $8.49 a month or $93.99 a year on Apple Podcasts.
