Think tank interviews Akina about life in a 'blue' state
From Grassroot Institute
Two staffers from a California think tank hosted Keli'i Akina, president of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii, on a half-hour podcast in which they discussed the challenges of trying to promote economic freedom in what are virtually one-party states.
Streamed Tuesday, Oct. 22, the interview was conducted by Rowena Itchon and Tim Anaya of the San Francisco-based Pacific Research Institute, which, like the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii, is a nonpartisan organization that has "remained steadfast to the vision of a free and civil society where individuals can achieve their full potential."
From the podcast introduction:
"Keli’i Akina is the president of the Grassroot Institute, a nonpartisan think tank based in Hawaii. Besides sunshine and palm trees, California and Hawaii have something in common — one-party rule. As Dr. Akina says in the interview, Hawaii is as blue as the ocean that surrounds it. We discuss the common issues of the Golden State and the Aloha State – affordable housing, high poverty, a pension crisis, and the high cost of living."
