Ep. 1990 The Dreadful State of Economics, and How to Fix It
One of this year's winners of the Nobel Prize in economics, David Card, co-authored the notorious Card-Krueger study of the minimum wage, which appeared to turn the conventional economic wisdom about the effects of minimum wages on its head. Peter Klein of Baylor University joins us to discuss what's gone wrong with economics such that we've reached the point where economists, rather than describing the constraints on what politics can accomplish, have become cheerleaders for the state.

Ep. 1980 What to Do When the Cancel Mob Comes for You
You know the usual approach: apologize, beg for mercy, explain that you didn't really mean it, that you've "grown" -- we're all drearily familiar with the usual pathetic attempts to avoid judgment from lunatics. It never works. It never, ever works. Life is going to be difficult no matter what you do, but at least keep your dignity. Kevin Dolan, who has just founded Exit Group, helps people figure out the correct course of action in these situations, and indeed how to position themselves in such a way that they're insulated from attacks like these in the first place.

Ep. 1976 Is AOC the Best Libertarian in Congress? That's What Left-Leaning Libertarians Say
Left-leaning libertarians have actually been claiming, if you can believe this, that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose worldview is altogether confused and state-centered, is actually the best libertarian in Congress. She is certainly better, they say, than Thomas Massie. Since this is insane, I decided to smash it. Sponsor: Getting clobbered by your competitors? Invisible in the search engines?
