The government lockdowns in response to the COVID-19 pandemic absolutely decimated small businesses. On top of that, major cities across the US were already seeing mass exoduses due to increasing cost of living, increased taxes, and the fact that cities are losing their initial appeal as hubs of commerce and activity.
Scott Beyer returns to the program to outline how a "Market Urbanism" approach to handling our cities woes could help put those cities back on course. It's getting government out of the way that helps solve these problems, and more often than not, it's the government getting in the way in the first place that caused the problems to begin with.

As weeks go by with the economy stuck on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many economists are starting to sound the alarm that the impact of our economy screeching to a halt could cause as much, if not more longterm death and prolonged hardship than the virus itself.
Dan J. Mitchell, a libertarian economist with a Ph.D. in Economics from George Mason University and founder for the Center for American Prosperity is amongst those economists raising his voice in concern. Mitchell joins The Brian Nichols Show today to discuss one of his more recent articles that discusses that very concern, titled, "The Temporary Tradeoff Between Health Outcomes and Economic Outcomes".
Listen as we discuss his article and then dig deeper into the dangers of a stagnant economy as it pertains to both the economic and physical health of the nation and more!
