Brink Lindsey and Steven Teles on rent-seeking and the twin melees afflicting the U.S. economy

From David Beckworth’s podcast series, Macro Musings comes this audio of an interview with Brink Lindsey and Steven Teles on Rent-Seeking and the Twin Melees Afflicting the U.S. Economy
Lindsey and Teles join Beckworth to discuss their new book, "The Captured Economy: How the Powerful Enrich Themselves, Slow Down Growth, and Increase Inequality." For Lindsey and Teles, slow growth and inequality are “twin melees” that are harming the economy. They discuss some of the issues at the root of these problems, including excessive occupational licensing laws and zoning regulations, as well as some ways to fix them.
