John Stossel joins the Whiskey Politics Podcast just as we were setting up at Freedom Fest. While we had some audio challenges, John spoke on regulations, entitlements, the ongoing drug war and how to ensure future generations will be taught about the benefits of free markets. John can now be found on http://Reason.com and is focusing on teaching students basic economic principals at http://StosselInTheClassroom.org.
For decades you have seen John appear on ABC News and Fox Business Channel preaching libertarian political philosophy and views on economics focusing on free markets. John has received 19 Emmy Awards and 5 National Press Club awards for excellence in consumer reporting. Stossel has written three books recounting how his experiences in journalism shaped his socioeconomic views, Give Me a Break in 2004, Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity in 2007, and No They Can't! Why Government Fails but Individuals Succeed.
