I was interviewed on The Renegade Report this week. I explain how Pravin Gordhan is steering South Africa off a fiscal cliff, argue that countries don’t need trade deals and, of course, we discuss **Trump** – the hysteria, and the reality. You’ll really enjoy this one.
The validity of Say’s Law stands as the gatekeeper of economic freedom and prosperity. Without it, economic fallacies justify state force, which is multiplied in the name of public salvation.
I was interviewed on Blindspot Podcast by host Stephen Reardon. We discussed the economic hangover of the financial crisis, the banning of interest and the revolt against technocratic socialism. We also dug into the political results of 2016 and why it might be good for the world. You’ll really enjoy this conversation.
