Kevin Gutzman: Thomas Jefferson—Revolutionary
Fri, Feb 24, 2017
Dr. Kevin Gutzman is a history professor at Western Connecticut State University, a New York Times best-selling author, and one of the leading Constitutional scholars in the country today. He and Jeff talk about his new book, Thomas Jefferson—Revolutionary: A Radical's Struggle to Remake America. Dr. Gutzman discusses some of the overlooked ways Jefferson shaped America, and how his radical views are often underplayed by many academics today. Jefferson’s views on self-governance freedom of conscious, and rejection of centralized control made him perhaps the most libertarian Founding Father — one whose ideas are still relevant today.

Michael Boldin: CalExit and Secession
Fri, Feb 17, 2017
This weekend, we welcome back Michael Boldin, founder of the Tenth Amendment Center and fearless advocate for political decentralization. Michael joins us next weekend at our event in San Diego, so we decided to ask him about the burgeoning CalExit movement and the Left's newfound appreciation for secession. Think California couldn't survive as an independent country? Think the current US boundaries are written in stone? If so, Michael will change how you think about the possibility of local rule in a deeply divided America. Stay tuned.

Patrick Byrne: How Tech Can Thwart the State
Fri, Feb 10, 2017
Overstock.com founder Patrick Byrne, the keynote speaker at our upcoming event in San Diego, is a brilliant innovator and freedom advocate. He holds a PhD in philosophy from Stanford, but understands e-commerce and blockchain technology like an engineer. He also understands Austrian economics, and courageously uses his public profile to make the Hayekian case for a decentralized political, economic, and social order. This presentation is excerpted from his talk given on our Auburn campus discussing the relationship between Austrian theory and the blockchain, and what it means for the eventual demise of government gatekeepers and middlemen.

Allen Mendenhall: Trump's Supreme Court
Fri, Feb 03, 2017
Brutus, writing in The Antifederalist Papers, had this to say about judges:
There is no power above them, to control any of their decisions. There is no authority that can remove them, and they cannot be controlled by the laws of the legislature. In short, they are independent of the people, of the legislature, and of every power under heaven. Men placed in this situation will generally soon feel themselves independent of heaven itself.
Now Trump has announced his nominee for the Supreme Court. Here to explain everything from a libertarian perspective is Allen Mendenhall, a lawyer, PhD, and director of the Blackstone and Burke Center. How will Gorsuch likely rule on important issues, given what we know about him? Is he an activist, an authoritarian, an originalist, or a positivist? Is he too cozy with federal power, or does he show a libertarian Coloradan streak? And, if confirmed, will he occupy a "stolen" seat?

Nick Sorrentino: Against Crony Capitalism
Fri, Jan 13, 2017
We've all heard the term crony capitalism, but what does it mean exactly? We know it involves using government to enrich certain interests, through contracts, lobbying, and rent-seeking. But, crony capitalism is far more: it is a systematic distortion of real capitalism, from local restaurants and real estate all the way up to global commodities and FOREX markets. Here to consider all the angles is our guest Nick Sorrentino, proprietor of AgainstCronyCapitalism.org.
Nick and Jeff Deist discuss how huge public companies—think defense giants like Lockheed Martin and Boeing—engage in an obvious form of fiscal cronyism, while Wall Street funds and investment banks engage in what we might call monetary cronyism. And we also discuss how average people reap undue benefits in a million small ways, from selling their homes in artificially overheated markets to making money from small businesses made possible only by bubbles. Is that tech startup really "worth" a $50 million payout to the founders? Thanks to the endless distortions of crony capitalism, we may never know.

Patrick Barron: Negative Interest Rates Demystified
Thu, Jan 05, 2017
We've all heard about negative interest rates, but we may not really understand them-- either conceptually or in terms of bond markets. Here to explain is our returning guest Dr. Patrick Barron, a longtime professor in the graduate school of banking at the University of Wisconsin.
How and why would interest rates ever be negative, when everyone prefers current consumption to future consumption? Can the "natural" or market rate of interest ever be negative? What going on in Europe that would make negative-rate government and corporate bonds attractive to investors? Will the ECB be forced to raise rates back into positive territory if Janet Yellen continues to raise the Fed Funds Rate here in the US? And will Congress resist steady rate hikes that could radically spike its annual budget outlay for debt service?

Ralph Raico: Liberalism Defined
Fri, Dec 30, 2016
Our last show for 2016 is bittersweet, featuring a lecture by our great friend and Senior Fellow Ralph Raico. Dr. Raico, who died earlier this month, was an intellectual giant known for his brilliant — and often revisionist — understanding of history.
Speaking at Mises University in 2009, Dr. Raico delivered a witty and razor-sharp exposition of what liberalism really means. We know you'll find it worthwhile to spend an hour during this holiday weekend with the great mind of Ralph Raico.

Ronald St?ferle: Austrian Investing
Fri, Dec 23, 2016
As our great friend Dr. Bob Murphy said on an earlier show, knowledge of economics is necessary—but not sufficient—to be be a good investor. A new book entitled Austrian School for Investors, co-authored by our guest, Ronald St?ferle, bridges the gap between understanding the economy and understanding how to invest money, in a highly readable and succinct format.
The book's co-authors are all economists and financial professionals, versed in both worlds. And, they've written a very different kind of investment book, one that doesn't tout stocks, sectors, industries, or complex timing strategies. It doesn't recommend specific equities or bonds. Instead, it's a fantastic primer on Austrian economics and its application to financial markets.
By understanding money, value, interest rates, business cycles, and capital from an Austrian perspective, the smart investor knows far more about fundamentals than many fund managers and investment advisers. Most of those managers and advisers are dangerously ignorant of monetary policy, and don't understand inflation—so they're stuck trying to time booms and busts. This book won't only change the way you look at making money, but how you look at Austrian economics itself.
