Common Sense Institute hosted The 1st Annual Free Enterprise Summit on December 14, 2021. The inaugural event featured the release of “Colorado’s Free Enterprise Report” and “The Rankings Book: 2022 Edition.” The release is the first of its kind reference for Colorado and compiles a wide range of economic and policy indicators that measures Colorado’s rank compared to other states in order to measure success and determine areas for improvement.

This episode captures the full audio from the event and features remarks from Chairman Earl Wright, President & CEO Kristin Strohm, Vice President of Policy & Research Chris Brown, and the panel discussion that follows. Our panel featured the following attendees:
