Zywicki Appears in New Documentary

Professor Todd Zywicki appears in Bankrupt: How Cronyism and Corruption Brought Down Detroit, a new documentary on the decline of Detroit and the American auto industry. In the documentary, Zywicki is interviewed on the dangers of cronyism.

Discussing the film on the Volokh Conspiracy blog, Zywicki writes, “The bottom-line lesson of the movie, I think, is that the distortions of crony capitalism run both ways, corrupting not just the government but breeding a sort of dependency and moral hazard that arises from corporate welfare” (The Volokh Conspiracy, Feb. 10, 2014).
