Episode 433: Entrepreneurism and the Economy
With a high-profile career that began in the early 1970s, Featured Guest Arthur Laffer is one of the world’s best known economists.

In our vignettes, Leisa visits with Jeannie Bollinger, Houston West Chamber of Commerce; Robin chats with the Houston Zoo’s Christine Warren; Karen Love interviews Jeff Applegate, Greater Houston Manufacturing Association; and Laura Max interviews the founder of Edward Sanchez Vanity Lounge.
Russ and John present the show that champions free enterprise, capitalism and entrepreneurship. It’s our mantra and we really believe it! Includes: Our Quote of the Week—humor from British politician Benjamin Disraeli; This Week in Business History includes the first Supreme Court, the discovery of radar (in 1922!) and Stanislav Petrov averts a nuclear war; and the Jargon Challenge Round—trendy technospeak you should know.
Featured Guest Arthur Laffer created The Laffer Curve and has been referred to as the “Father of Supply-Side Economics.” In 1999 Time Magazine included him in an article about “The Century’s Greatest Minds.” He was a member of President Reagan’s Economic Policy Advisory Board for both terms.
