Matt Kibbe and the Beer Freedom Index

 

Wonderful show with special guest Matt Kibbe joining the podcast! Matt is the former President of “FreedomWorks” and current President and Chief Community Organizer of “Free the People“, an economist by training, public policy expert, a best-selling author, and first and foremost craft beer lover!

As a disruptive force in politics, Beer is the perfect microcosm example to discuss problems of top-down central planning and the forces of government planning. Matt, explains the “Beer Freedom Index” (wish I thought of that) and why the less freedom a country has, the less likely it will have a tasty brew…. if at all!

We also dive into the correlations the industry has with technology, the sharing economy, the war on drugs and if we have learned anything from prohibition. Finally, we answer “Is beer the perfect example of liberty in action?”
