Ron 's episode appearances
Episode 73: “Big is Beautiful” with Robert Atkinson
What do you think about the following statements? Small businesses are overwhelmingly responsible for job creation, innovation and American prosperity. Small businesses are more productive than big companies. And small business owners are the core of democracy in America. Yet Washington, controlled by big business and engaged in “crony capitalism,” systemically discriminates against small business. We all know this is true, right? Well, no, these things are not true. Or at least, mostly not true. Joining me to explain why is Robert Atkinson, author of “Big is Beautiful: Debunking the Myth of Small Business” and Ron Nicol who led Boston Consulting Group’s Americas Practice and was global leader of its Media, Technology and Communications Group. Rob, founder and president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, is one of the country’s foremost thinkers on innovation economics.

Episode 52: Part 1: Ed Meese on the Mueller Report with Ron Nicol
We had the good fortune to have Ron Nicol and Edwin Meese on The Bill Walton Show the day the Mueller report was released. Meese, a former U.S. Attorney General, says Robert Mueller should have made a decision on obstruction of justice by the president and that at least one of his attorneys was a "totally irresponsible, unprofessional, unscrupulous lawyer" whom "should not be in any part of the Department of Justice." There's much more in this penetrating analysis by one of our foremost Constitutional authorities."
