Kerry Jackson – Tort System Enriching Lawyers and Not Helping Victims

Our guest this week is Kerry Jackson, PRI senior fellow at our Center for California Reform. He and senior fellow in business and economics Wayne Winegarden, Ph.D. co-authored PRI’s new study “Enriching Lawyers and Not Helping Victims: Why tort reform will help grow the economy and address injustice. The study found that Americans pay a “tort tax” of $1,300 per person thanks to lawsuit abuse. Reforming the legal system could boost the U.S. economy by 2 percent over time. Kerry discusses the findings of the study and offers recommendations on we can mitigate this drag on the economy.
