Fresh from the 11th floor studio at AEI, the latest episode of AEI’s Banter podcast drills down on the energy revolution sweeping the nation. AEI blogger extraordinaire, Mark Perry, discusses how and why oil and gas production is heading through the roof in these United States. Mark explains why the US is leading the way, how expanded drilling benefits the economy, and what the impact is on the environment. The innovations that led to the boom took place largely outside the direction of public policy, making it a true case of private sector innovation. We also compare Texas and California, two states that are using their reserves in dramatically different ways. Enjoy!
