The problem with Wall Street getting into public lands drilling

Sep 26, 2023

Kate and Aaron are joined by Alan Zibel with Public Citizen, a consumer advocacy group focused on the influence of big business in government, and Nichole Heil with the Private Equity Stakeholder Project, a watchdog group focused on bringing transparency and accountability to the private equity sector, to talk about a report they co-authored. The report, Private Profits, Public Risks, looks into how Wall Street—or private equity—firms are funding new drilling on public land and threatening to leave taxpayers with a massive clean up bill.
