Scott is again joined by Ryan McMaken of the Mises Institute to talk about the economy. First, they examine the major fluctuations in the money supply to help us predict where in the boom-bust cycle we might be. They then identify the dominant economic philosophy of the U.S. government before finishing with a discussion of the national debt, housing and employment.
Discussed on the show:
- “Money Supply Growth Falls to Depression-Era Levels for Second Month in April” (Mises.org)
- For a New Liberty by Murray Rothbard
