Recently I had the real pleasure of interviewing Dr. Burt Folsom of Hillsdale College. In his book, The Myth of the Robber Barons, he smashes the commonly held belief that Vanderbilt, Carnegie, Rockefeller, etc. were greedy capitalists that kept the average American down. As you’ll hear in this interview, nothing could be further from the truth. We also tackle one of my favorite topics: FDR and the Great Depression.
