How bad is the post-Covid economy, from shortages of goods and workers to inflation to rent moratoriums? Will all the monetary and fiscal stimulus really work?

Make Politics Matter Less With Jeff Deist GodArchy Podcast

You know things are out of wack when soft drinks become politicized!

And that’s where we are today.

We’ve politicized virtually everything. But at the core, politics is violence, force and coercion. Surely, that’s not the best way we can come up with to interact with each other and advance human flourishing.

In this episode, Mises Institute president Jeff Deist and I talk about making politics matter less. We focus on other important institutions and other ways of interacting with each other without turning to political solutions.

Coming Apart, Coming Together | Jeff Deist

Last time we met in Orlando, Bob Murphy mentioned how much worse our political and social divide would be if the economy crashed like 2008. Now we face this very problem—with COVID-19 lockdowns and George Floyd protests decimating the economy and social media exposing raw animosity along racial and “woke” lines. Congress and the Fed have gone into overdrive creating new stimulus and “liquidity,” but 40 million Americans are unemployed and major cities are still recovering from turmoil. The national debt tops $26 trillion while tax receipts at all levels of government plummet.

So what does it all mean for you, for freedom, and for the future of America—economic and otherwise?

Recorded in Orlando, Florida, on August 29, 2020. Special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Greg Roe for making this event
