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.

Snowden’s E-mail Provider Shrugs, Christie Signs Gun Control Legislation & More, today at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET)

It appears that Edward Snowden’s e-mail provider, Lavabit, has decided to shut down instead of continuing to operate on the government’s terms. Chris Christie, governor of New Jersey and the current GOP frontrunner in 2016 according to recent polls, just signed into law 10 pieces of gun control legislation. And much more! (See program notes, below, for stories we plan to discuss.)
