Who's the last first person you'd want driving you around for a fee? That's right, Kennedy:
Our hostess's participation in e-hailing is just one of many angles taken in tonight's special theme broadcast of The Independents on Fox Business Network (9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, with re-airs three and five hours later). "The Sharing Economy" will feature:
* Beloved Reason columnist Veronique de Rugy, talking about how the stifling regulatory state encourages these innovate workarounds.
* Disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner, who will defend the regulatory state and otherwise do a lot of shouting.
It's a terrific and informative program, and you should tell all your friends to watch it, two times. I'll be on Fox Business Network's After the Bell to preview the show at 4:45 ET.
And to get in the mood, there's nothing better than re-reading and re-watching Jim Epstein's marvelous multimedia piece from this spring, "All Hail the 'Sharing Economy!' A Mushy Phrase Gives Liberals Cover to Join the Fight Against Big Government."
