This week on Moving Forward, the Young Voices radio show, we hear from contributors Ben Cope, Mailyn Salabarria, Alexander Salter, and Sofia Hamilton.

Somewhere between growth at any cost and choosing to live in poverty is where we’ll likely find the environmental sweet spot. Ben Cope says we must sever the link between economic growth and environmental degradation.

Few people can carry the message of freedom over force like those who have lived under despotic conditions. Mailyn Salabarria from the Young Voices Dissident Project joins us to describe her experiences growing up in and escaping from Cuba.

Economic cycles bring highs and lows but what’s happening to our economy right now is creating serious issues. Alexander Salter explains how Biden’s regulatory assault is worse than recessionary

Just because something seems like a good idea at first glance, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be scrutinized for potential negative results as well. Sofia Hamilton shares her thoughts on the unexpected consequences of tobacco bans that affect bonds, taxes, the police, and more.
