On our latest episode we are joined by Dr. Mark Thornton of the Mises Institute for a second appearance.  Today we discuss his great work on what is known as The Skyscraper Index which posits that each time the world’s largest skyscraper is built, an economic crisis follows.  Dr. Thornton has uncovered some pretty compelling evidence to support the theory in the past and has a new article on the newest tallest building in the world under construction in Saudi Arabia.
