This week is the December edition of Incentives & Instincts, a recurring series in which Justin speaks with economist and friend, Bryce Ward, about some of the broader challenges facing our society. To close out the year, Justin and Bryce talk about some of the good things that have happened this year. Making it on that list include a relatively seamless midterm election season, a decline in the poverty rate, a stock correction, Medicaid expansion and a less extreme wildfire season. Justin and Bryce acknowledge that often in I&I they press pause on technological advancement, but note the bonuses of having more resources available more widely to solve problems.
