ITTe278: Corporatism Takes Aim at Conservatism and Individual Liberty
The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Justin Haskins are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 278 of the In The Tank Podcast. Recently, big corporations like Amazon, Google, and big banks are using their power to target conservatives and industries. The ITT crew discusses these events and how they are a result of corporatism and government action and not of the free market. They also talk about some of the executive orders issued by Joe Biden on his first day as president.
