7/3/20 Tom Woods on How the Pentagon Makes Us Poorer

Scott talks to Tom Woods about his latest free ebook, The Pentagon vs. The Economy. Woods examines the many ways America’s military-industrial complex distorts the economy, often applying Frederic Bastiat’s principle of “seen vs. unseen” to demonstrate just how many resources are diverted away from the productive economy, toward the project of killing foreigners abroad. Woods has written the book with minimal political slant, so that readers on both the left and the right can find agreement on this vitally important issue.
