The Weekly Top 3 (10.3.2022)
Quantifying the differences among the #AKgov candidates on the PFD, our reaction to the SalmonState report on AIDEA & why #AKfiscal will remain at risk until there’s a compromise
Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind here at Alaskans for Sustainable Budgets — for the week of October 3, 2022.
The Weekly Top 3 is a regular weekly segment on The Michael Dukes Show. The Show broadcasts on Facebook and YouTubeLive as well as via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6–8am. I join Michael weekly in the first hour of Tuesday’s show, from 6:25–7am, for a discussion between the two of us about our three issues.
This week our top 3 issues are these: 1) we quantify the significant differences in the positions of the various candidates for Governor on the PFD (2:09), 2) we discuss the recent Salmon State report on AIDEA and explain why AIDEA is never going to produce returns comparable to those from the Permanent Fund Corp (19:56), and 3) we provide our take on why Alaska will remain at significant fiscal risk until the various sides in the debate work on a compromise along the lines of the legislature’s 2021 Fiscal Policy Working Group (27:59).
The segment is at the YouTube clip above. For those that prefer the audio version, it is available both on our Spotify and Soundcloud pages. For this and other complete podcasts of The Michael Dukes Show, go to the Show’s Soundcloud page here.
