We talk with Paul Glastris, editor in chief, Washington Monthly. We discuss the problem of inflation in the US and elsewhere. We should be looking at the monopolists who are driving up prices, rather than blaming government policies. There are grotesque inefficiencies in monopolies, and this is a long term problem, and will require long term solutions.
We talk with Emma Pattee, who writes about the climate crisis. We discuss the concept of "climate shadow", which conveys more than a "climate footprint" concept. Climate shadow is based on consumption, choices, and attention that affects climate.
