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.

On our latest episode I was happy to welcome Ryan McMaken of the Mises Institute as our guest.  Ryan is editor of Mises Daily and The Free Market and is the author of the book, Commie Cowboys: The Bourgeoisie and the Nation-State in the Western Genre.   Today on the podcast we discuss Net Neutrality: what it’s all about and what the recent vote means.

I recently had a great chat with Jeff Deist, President of the Ludwig Von Mises Institute in Auburn, AL. Jeff spoke to me about his experiences as Ron Paul’s Chief of Staff… and he answered a lot of fun questions on libertarianism in general. It was really insightful to get his take on the state of the movement today. Enjoy!

We recently had a very interesting conversation with Mark Thornton of the Ludwig von Mises Institute. We discussed some Austrian economics basics and analyzed today’s economy through the lens of an Austrian. We also got a sneak peek into his latest article coming out soon on mises.org.

Today I was very lucky to have the opportunity to chat with Dr. Walter Block.  What struck me most was the courage and conviction he has to hold, disseminate and defend some very unpopular, un-PC opinions.  It was a very enlightening conversation for me.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
