How pollution shapes our economy and our health ft. Claudia Persico

How common is pollution in the United States, and what kind of practical impact does it have?  Economist Claudia Persico joins the podcast to discuss her new report for PPI's Innovation Frontier Project, titled "How Exposure To Pollution Quietly Shapes The American Workforce And Economy".  We discuss the ways in which pollution impacts our health, our economy, our children, and more.  We also discuss how pollution got to be so bad, what's in the current infrastructure bills dealing with pollution, and what sort of changes society should make to lessen the negative impact pollution has. Check out the report, from the Innovation Frontier Project and PPI!  https://innovationfrontier.org/how-exposure-to-pollution-quietly-shapes-the-american-workforce-and-economy/     To make sure you hear every episode, join our Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/neoliberalproject.
