5/16/22 Ethan Siegel: How Hot Are Nuclear Bombs?

 Download Episode. Ethan Siegel joins Scott to discuss the science behind the temperature of thermonuclear explosions. Scott is putting together a new book that argues for the abolition of nuclear weapons called Hotter Than The Sun. He wanted to talk with an expert who can actually explain how the bombs are able to reach temperatures that far exceed the center of the Sun. Siegel wrote an article on that exact topic a few years ago, so he’s the perfect person to answer that question. At the end, they also talk about some of the things to avoid if you find yourself in the aftermath of a...

Ron Paul Sits Down with Matt Kibbe for Longform Interview on Life & Liberty

In interviews, Ron Paul tends mainly to be asked about events of the day. These often-short interviews help Paul advance his goal of communicating the ideas of liberty. It is interesting and illuminating in a different way when Paul on occasion takes part in longer, in-depth interviews focused largely on himself and his relationship to libertarianism. A new interview of Paul by host Matt Kibbe at Kibbe on Liberty is such an in-depth interview. Much of the interview is focused on Paul’s life and its relation to libertarianism. The interview starts with Paul’s learning about Austrian...

Other good news from the survey: 84% of people oppose erasing records of police misconduct every few years. 62% of people say police unions should not be allowed to collectively bargain over methods used to hold police officers accountable for...

The Fed Looks Increasingly Concerned About Liquidity and Growth — Even If it Says Otherwise

The Federal Reserve lowered its benchmark interest rate on Wednesday, cutting the target federal funds rate by 0.25 percent to a range of 0.5 to 0.75 percent. The Fed's rate-setting committee, the FOMC, has now cut rates three times this year. The committee's rhetoric around the rate cut was the usual routine. The committee's statement indicated that " labor market remains strong and that economic activity has been rising at a moderate rate." But the official statement says something similar nearly every time the committee meets. So, there is no information here to suggests why the...

Trump Tariff Tweet Blast Dumps Markets Lower

For the past few weeks stock market investors have been expecting a resolution of the Trump tariff negotiations, with expectations growing that some sort of deal would be settled by the end of this week. Last week Trump officials such as Larry Kudlow even made positive statements saying it was coming. But this weekend Trump tweeted threats to increase tariffs by Friday – which is throwing markets in the dumps this morning as it shows that all of the positive trade talk hopes were misguided and the talk of an easy deal was misleading. That is the real implication of the tweet – it doesn’t...
