Interview with John Allison, President and CEO of The Cato Institute and former CEO of BB&T

At the top of the second hour of today’s show I’ll have the pleasure of interviewing John Allison, who is currently President and CEO of The Cato Institute, and formerly was the CEO of BB&T, the 10th largest financial institution in the United States. We’ll be discussing his book, The Leadership Crisis and the Free Market Cure: Why the Future of Business Depends on the Return to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, in which Allison presents the principles necessary to achieve success and happiness—principles applicable to individuals, organizations and society as a whole.

During the first hour I’ll be discussing some news more generally, most likely focusing on the current hostage situations in France, one of which involves the jihadists who massacred 12 journalists and cartoonists working for Charlie Hebdo, the French satirical magazine that dared to mock Islam and Mohammad.

  3. Well, that call has motivated me to sit down and write about Whiplash now. I will be sure to post my thoughts here when I am done. 🙂

    I think the French are somewhat hypocritcal here. They don’t believe in free speech. You can be silenced in France for “hate speech.”
