I started listening right before the election and it very quickly helped me realized I wasn't as libertarian as I had once thought. A really insightful pod that has helped me understand political ideas that I had always had in the back of my mind but didn’t know how to voice. Also does anyone else clap on the snare drop during the bumper music? Just me? Oh, okay. Thank you Marshall and Saagar!
My question: I have always wondered what the effect of a government policy to help people move for work would be. For example, if you are a family of low-income service worker and say you want to leave a big, expensive city and move to a small midwestern town but could never save enough money for a moving truck and other expenses for your family. You hear of a new industry or business that has lots of new openings in a town across the country, so the government provides a $3000 to check to alleviate move costs? How do you think that would affect underemployment and cross-country migration?
