Tune in to hear guests such as Larry Kudlow, Steve Forbes, and Art Laffer present a practical and moral vindication of America’s capitalist way of life.

    Episode 178: Strategic Ambiguity

    Episode 178: Strategic Ambiguity

    David is joined this week by Dr. Greg Forster, a professor at Trinity International University and the author of numerous fine works in the domain of faith and culture (one such link below). If avoiding the two reductionist extremes of the moment leaves one homeless in the current moment, David and Greg are roommates on the street. But as you will see, the work fusionism still has to do is an important topic, as is wrestling through the role of the state in modern society, truth claims and religious neutrality, and a few other light matters that might not get unpacked in 45 minutes. From Whitaker Chambers to Bill Buckley to Abraham Kuyper, our conversation covers the greats and will leave you coming back for more.

This is an episode for all who believe work is the verb of economics!

    David is joined by Dr. Hunter Baker for a real walk through the kind of society we want to be and the things that are most likely to facilitate such a society. Their discussion delves deeply into what the state can and cannot do in the formation of character, and how markets reflect the character of the people. Their prescriptions for a free and virtuous people call for more freedom and more virtue, and the way we get there is the subject of this talk. A not-to-be-missed conversation.
