Description by Producer

Ever think that the government doesn’t know best? Can the news media always be counted on to get the story straight? Drew Carey hosts four teaching videos that challenge some commonly held assumptions.

1.) Traffic Gridlock highlights innovative private-sector solutions to the problem of traffic congestion. How does a speedy trip on the “Drew Carey Freeway” sound? How about a helicopter ride to work?

2.) Living Large challenges the claim that the American middle class is being squeezed. The media and politicians tell us that it’s all doom and gloom for those of us who are neither millionaires nor welfare cases. What do you think?

3.) Dance Ban is a modern-day “Footloose” story. In Arizona, a steak house featuring live music went into business. Then the county officials invoked an ordinance that banned dancing. So go ahead and eat – but watch that toe-tapping!

4.) Officials in National City (California), a predominantly Hispanic community, pushed to tear down an athletic center for struggling kids to make way for luxury condos. Why would they do that?

5.) Food Fight investigates how licensing affects entrepreneurship on the streets of Los Angeles. In downtown LA, people are hungry for the local delicacy – bacon dogs. But selling them can land street vendors in jail. Take a trip with Drew Carey into the black market world of selling bacon dogs.

6.) Kidneys for Sale tackles the controversial topic of organ donation. Each year in the U.S., thousands of people die while on the waiting list for a kidney. What if donors could be paid?

7.) Throw Pillow Fight challenges a growing licensing movement in the field of interior design. Do decorating decisions affect the health, welfare, and safety of consumers? Can unlicensed interior designers put your life at risk?

8.) Who benefits from Agricultural Subsidies? Some argue that agricultural subsidies are necessary to protect America’s farmers and ensure a steady food supply. Critics say U.S. farm programs cost taxpayers billions each year, significantly raise the price of commodities, undermine world trade agreements, and contribute to the suffering of poor farmers around the world.
