Encroaching

Government spending encroaches upon the private sector. The total output in goods and services can’t be changed by key strokes. If the private sector and free markets are more efficient and are crowded out by government spending. It is the Road to Serfdom through creeping socialism at the microeconomic level.

Please stop re-airing old episodes

I love your podcast and have listened to it for several years. However, I’ve noticed in the past few years that you are constantly re-airing old podcast episodes, with very few updates. As someone who has already listened to these, I find it very annoying that they are not labelled in the newsfeed. Can you please consider stopping doing this? People can review the podcasts from earlier times if they like. I’m fine with fewer episodes being released each week if they are all new. Thank you.

Very clear explanation of the recent economic news. Easy to understand but also covers the root of the issue.
