Professor Sidney Shapiro was interviewed on Ian Masters’ radio program, “Background Briefing,” on Jan. 30, 2017. The episode is titled, “What Motivated the Canadian Mass Shooter; Trump Puts a Target on the Back of US Soldiers in Iraq; Trump’s Radical and Unworkable ‘Two Out, One In’ Executive Order.”
Professor Shapiro, an expert in administrative procedure and regulatory policy and the Vice President of the Center for Progressive Reform, covers President Trump’s “Two-out, One-in” Executive Order, which requires executive departments to eliminate two regulations for every new one issued. The order potentially could have a significant effect on the highly regulated healthcare industry.
Already, the order has been criticized for appearing “as radical as it is unworkable,” according to Master’s website. Professor Shapiro and Masters discuss the “Sophie’s Choice” notion of the order.
University of Michigan Professor and Iraq expert Juan Cole and author Mubin Shaikh are also featured on this episode. Cole discussed Trump’s remarks about redoing the Iraq war to steal Iraqi oil, and Shaikh discussed the unusual mass shooting at a Canadian mosque.
