Podcast #113: John Kristof, Lemonade and Permit Patty

John Kristof is a Research Fellow at the Sagamore Institute in Indianapolis who writes frequently on economic issues. He joins the Young Voices Podcast today to talk about occupational licensing following an outcry over “Permit Patty”, a woman who called the cops of a young child in San Francisco for selling water bottles on her block.

John has studied matters related to labor, economics and the idea of getting a permission slip to work. His most recent piece in RealClearPolicy looks at the battle for the right to sell lemonade in your own neighborhood and how companies are getting involved to fight arcane laws.
