3/30/18 David Collum on the poisoning of a Russian ex-spy in London and Austrian Business Cycle

Cornell professor of organic chemistry David Collum joins Scott to discuss the recent poisoning of a Russian ex-spy and his daughter in London. Collum explains why Theresa May’s initial comments about the chemical’s properties set off his skeptic alarms and what the alternative possibilities to the accepted narrative are. Collum then explains why he’s a believer in Austrian Business Cycle theory and argues that, had the criminals of the 2008 recession been justly prosecuted and imprisoned, the American political landscape would be far saner. Lastly Collum does his best to forecast the next crash and explains why he thinks it could be even worse than the last.
