The Cato Institute has posted a podcast in which I briefly explain why it is important to take action to increase Americans’ ability to vote with their feet, and what some of the obstacles to effective foot voting are. Enhancing foot voting is an excellent way to increase both political freedom and economic opportunity, especially for the poor. The podcast is partly based on my recent USA Today op ed on the same subject.
