Now Playing on The Yaron Brook Show: Dismantling Cronyism and Freeing Business

Donald Trump’s election has spotlighted an important issue: cronyism and the “rigged system” that has special interests in bed with government, getting bailouts and other favors. Following the defeat of Hillary Clinton, the ultimate Washington insider, what could — and should — the Trump administration do about this problem? Do we have an opportunity to dismantle cronyism, unrig the system, and free business? What would it take to end business-government collusion?

In this episode of The Yaron Brook Show, originally aired December 3, 2016, on AM560 The Answer, Yaron Brook analyzes the problem of cronyism and offers practical suggestions for disentangling government and business. Listen here:
