Jeff Deist: Surviving Election Season
Fri, May 20, 2016
This week, Jeff Deist joins Joshua Bennett on the Patriots Lament show (KFAR AM 660, Fairbanks) and gives his thoughts on the 2016 election. Jeff discusses how the ultimate outcome of any election season is greater division among society, and argues that libertarians should focus on making the case for decentralizing power. Liberty will never come from the White House, but from winning over the hearts and minds of our friends and neighbors in our own communities.

John O'Donnell: How Central Banks Affect Culture
Fri, May 13, 2016
This weekend, Jeff Diest and John O'Donnell discuss central banking and culture. We tend to think of central banking as a dry subject for professional economists, rather than a cultural and even moral issue. But the Fed and other central banks create huge moral hazards, degrade longstanding social mores like hard work and thrift, and encourage economic hedonism today at the expense of tomorrow. Every healthy society is built on capital accumulation and building for a future beyond lives, whereas central banks encourage consumption and turn us into zombie debtors. What happens to the future when ultra-low interest rates mean saving is for chumps? And why have we allowed Greenspan, Bernanke, and Yellen to hide the Fed's harmful cultural effects behind a wall of technical Fed-speak?

Jim Rickards: The New Case for Gold
Fri, May 06, 2016
Thirty-five years ago, Ron Paul and Lewis Lehrman published The Case for Gold, their minority report from Reagan's gold commission. Today, Jim Rickards has written The New Case for Gold, an uncompromising call for using gold as money and reestablishing a gold standard for central banks.
In this wide-ranging interview, Jeff Deist and Jim Rickards discuss gold in the context of current geopolitics and enduring myths about monetary growth. While the "anti-gold reflex" is strong among older generation monetary economists in the west, a new gold-friendly order is emerging in Asia. Jeff and Jim even discuss whether Hillary will be indicted, leading to a Joe Biden/Elizabeth Warren ticket. This is a fascinating interview that you won't want to miss.

Daniel McAdams: How the War Party Works
Fri, Apr 22, 2016
Our guest is Daniel McAdams, head of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. Daniel is a foreign policy expert, having worked for many years on Capitol Hill and as an election monitor in eastern Europe. Daniel and Jeff discuss the role Dr. Paul played in creating the noninterventionist populism visible in both the Trump and Sanders campaigns, and how the public now sees the Iraq war as a mistake. Daniel also discusses the depth and reach of the "war party" lobby, marked by well-funded think tanks, a revolving door of hawkish congressional staffers, and brazen manipulation of the federal budget by defense contractors. How do neoconservative interests get their hooks into members of Congress? How do people like Bill Kristol (who never seems to be right about anything), maintain their grip on the US foreign policy establishment? And, how do ordinary people reclaim the narrative from those who would recklessly expand US intervention in Syria and Iran?

Dr. Michel Accad: Can Austrian Economics Save Medicine?
Fri, Apr 15, 2016
At this year's AERC, Dr. Michel Accad, who practices cardiology and internal medicine in San Francisco, presented a fascinating paper fusing Misesian insights with medicine. Dr. Accad highlights how viewing "the body as a machine" has played a major role in the rise of medical paternalism and one-size-fits all treatment. Dr. Accad instead proposes a praxeological framework for medicine, with health being defined "as the state that is present when one's physical and mental conditions allow the pursuit of one's chosen ends." Dr. Accad's talk is a brilliant application of Austrian theory to real world practice. Download File - 15.6 MB (Click to Play on Mobile Device) Listen To This Podcast (Streaming Audio)
