Nathan Mehrens will be on Newstadion 1070 WINA on The Schilling Show talking about free market energy policies from 12:15-12:45pm on May 7th.

“We can’t have an energy strategy that traps us in the past,” President Obama proclaimed in March 2012. “We need an energy strategy for the future — an all-of-the-above strategy for the Twenty-First Century that develops every source of American-made energy.”

At first blush, this sounds like common sense. The U.S. economy and lifestyle “depend on inexpensive and plentiful energy,” the Congressional Research Service noted in a 2005 report, but people tend to forget this until world events cause gasoline prices to spike. Then Washington reacts, CRS continued — passing the Energy Policy Acts of 1992, 2005 and 2007. However, the U.S. still does not have a “comprehensive long-term energy policy” that balances increasing supply with conservation and defines the proper interplay between government and market forces.”

For more information on how a free market energy policy can transform the economy, be sure to listen live tomorrow.
