Posted: Fri. April 24, 2020, 11:02am PT

Executive Director Dr. Graham H. Walker interviews Dr. R. David Ranson (author of “Why a Pandemic Is Not a Recession.”) who argues that the most likely cause of a recession, if we are to have one in conjunction with an epidemic, is compulsive government efforts to slow the spread of a disease by extending interference in economic life to the point where it becomes counterproductive, undermining people’s livelihoods as well as ultimately their health.

“Suspend California AB5 Now” Sr. Fellow Bill Evers appears on the John Batchelor Show
Posted: Wed. April 22, 2020, 12:24pm PT

California's AB5, the law intended to help "gig" workers by mandating they become employees of the companies for which they work, has had unintended consequences. Contracted workers such as nurses, musicians, writers, drivers, have been left with fewer jobs because it's too expensive to hire them as full time workers. Sr. Fellow Bill Evers initiated an Open Letter to California Governor Gavin Newsom and the California legislature to suspend AB5 to allow these workers the freedom they desire in their choice of employment.

“Suspend CA AB5 Now” Sr. Fellow Bill Evers appears on the Phil Cowan show on KTKZ radio
Posted: Tue. April 21, 2020, 12:31pm PT

An Open Letter to California Governor Gavin Newsom and the California state legislature to suspend CA AB5, was signed by over 150 scholars, economists, and political scientists. The law, AB5, was passed in 2019 and makes independent contractors or "gig" workers to be absorbed into the companies they work for. The companies cannot bear the costs of hiring workers, so these contractors are suffering. It's another law which has unintended consequences. Workers and companies are both impaired by the law, which should be suspended especially during the pandemic. Workers such as nurses, delivery drivers, musicians, and writers and other contractors have been particularly affected. Evers also talks about the readiness of educators to teach via distance learning during the coronavirus pandemic.
