Bootleggers and Baptists After 30 Years with Bruce Yandle

Bruce Yandle Bootleggers and BaptistsDr. Bruce Yandle published his original paper, “Bootleggers and Baptists” in 1983. Looking back on the last 30 years and this important theory of regulation Dr. Yandle was gracious enough to talk with IHS Economics Program Officer Mario Villarreal-Diaz about the legacy of this theory, it’s current applications, and to share encouraging words for young classical liberal scholars in their research today. This is a great podcast with Dr. Yandle that we were fortunate enough to record at the IHS Regulatory Studies Seminar a few weeks ago.

Dr. Bruce Yandle is Dean Emeritus of Clemson University’s College of Business & Behavioral Science, Alumni Distinguished Professor of Economics Emeritus, Distinguished Professor of Economics at the Mercatus Center, and Senior Fellow with the Property and Environment Research Center.
