Patrick Barron: Do Central Bankers Really Believe What they Say?
Fri, Sep 18, 2015
Our guest this week is Patrick Barron, a professor of economics and a student of global currency markets. Patrick and I dissect the Fed's big announcement this past week not to raise interest rates, and consider whether Janet Yellen and other central bankers really believe in what they're doing.
Is it all just to save themselves from the judgment of history, by kicking the can down the road? Have they read, or even considered, Austrian arguments on money and banking? Or are they simply so wedded to Keynesian orthodoxy that they literally don't know what else to do? And what type of precipitating events might spell the end of US dollar imperialism?

Per Bylund: Refugees, Property Rights, and Open Borders
Fri, Sep 11, 2015
Our guest this weekend is Professor Per Bylund, whose article on immigration elicited plenty of discussion on mises.org and social media earlier this week. Dr. Bylund argues that property rights, not government immigration policies, should serve as the natural regulator of immigration and human movement. Since the state is never legitimate, "open borders" is conceptually irrelevant. Our focus as libertarians should be on property, freedom of association, and the equally important freedom of dissociation. Migrants do not enjoy unbridled freedom of movement when such movement becomes a matter of trespass.
We discuss several arguments made by Hans Hermann Hoppe regarding externalities caused by forced integration and "public lands." As usual, the problem lies with states themselves: disruptive wars and bad economic policies cause tremendous human dislocations, while welfare state incentives encourage immigration for the wrong reasons.
If you're interested in the divisive topic of immigration from a libertarian perspective, stay tuned. Download File - 20.8 MB (Click to Play on Mobile Device) Listen To This Podcast (Streaming Audio)

Jim Rickards: Will Currency Wars Reorder the World?
Fri, Sep 04, 2015
Our guest this weekend is Jim Rickards, the author of the New York Times bestseller The Death of Money and a well-known expert in geopolitics and global capital.
Jim and Jeff discuss the unfolding drama at the Fed, which can't decide when—if ever—QE will come to an end. They also discuss possible endgame scenarios for liquidating unprecedented amounts of sovereign, commercial, and household debt; whether coming monetary shocks will present the IMF with an opportunity to demand a global currency reset, and who wins and loses when the game of musical chairs stops. This is a must-hear interview for anyone interested in currency wars, central banks, and the unholy politics behind it all.

Dr. Joe Salerno: Crashes are the Cure, not the Problem
Fri, Aug 28, 2015
Last Monday's mini-crash in equity markets reminded many people of the dark days following the Crash of 2008. The 400 richest people in the world collectively lost $124 billion—at least on paper—in a single day. And the average investor may get tired of seeing his or her net worth take a nosedive every 7 or 8 years.
Here to make sense of market crashes is our own Dr. Joe Salerno. Why does the financial press fail to see monetary inflation as the cause of stock bubbles? Why is deflation portrayed as an enemy to be defeated, rather than a sign of a more productive economy? Why do even seasoned financial experts fail at timing the market? And are deflationary crashes actually the cure for a sick economy? Download File - 10.6 MB (Click to Play on Mobile Device) Listen To This Podcast (Streaming Audio)
Helio BeltrÃ£o: Will Brazil Choose Marx or Mises?
Fri, Aug 21, 2015
Brazil is in a meltdown: its stock markets are crashing, inflation is over 10%, and huge numbers of people are marching in the street to demand the impeachment of President Dilma Rouseff. And while collectivism runs deep in Brazilian politics and academia, the tide may be turning—some protesters now carry signs demanding “Less Marx, More Mises.”
Our friend Helio BeltrÃ£o, President of Mises Institute Brazil, is here to explain what’s going on. Will Brazil continue to unravel, even as it prepares to host the world for the 2016 Summer Olympics? Or is there a path forward, led by a growing movement eager to shrug off the old guard of Marxist cronies?
