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.

9/7/17 Mark Thornton on the Austrian Business Cycle Theory and where we are today

Senior fellow of the Mises Institute Mark Thornton returns to the show to discuss Austrian business cycle theory, how the Fed's artificially low interest rates create perverse incentives, resulting in wild spending on both the production and consumer sides of the economy. Thornton discusses the crash of the stock market in the 1970s after Richard Nixon took the United States off the gold standard, which motivated Ron Paul to run for office and explains the moral hazard of fractional reserve banking and how it's at odds with a system of sound, commodity-based money. Instead we're subjected...

Robert Murphy returns to the show to discuss how the new GOP healthcare bill compares to Obamacare, why pre-2007 healthcare was far from a free market, and how the Democrats are misleading people when they claim repealing Obamacare will literally kill people. Murphy also explains why he expects the next financial crisis to happen in Europe, how the Fed is raising rates in an unusual way, and why price stability may be an indicator of a bubble. And, of course, how the Fed helps finance America's wars. Murphy holds a Ph.D. in economics from New York University, and is a Research Assistant...
