Your weekly reinforcement for the defense of capital markets.
Episode 72: A Tour through Vienna and Chicago
David is joined today by Dr. Mark Skousen, Presidential Fellow of Economics at Chapman University, best-selling author, founder of the Freedom Fest, and a leading public intellectual in the fight for free enterprise. David and Mark cover a wide gamut of economic topics, economic history, and discuss which schools of thought they most enjoy playing footsie with.
Episode 71: Capital Markets R’Us
David is joined once again by Oren Cass of American Compass, this time to discuss the state of American financial markets. The two have a congenial conversation about private equity and venture capital, what is going wrong with the two, and what the solutions may be. There is more disagreement than agreement, but there is a mutual and sincere effort to identify issues and present thoughtful remedies. Whatever your view may be on what is right or wrong in the evolution of financial markets, you’ll find this robust discussion thoughtful, provocative, and engaging.
Episode 70: Demography and Economic Destiny
David is joined this week by Lyman Stone, renowned expert in demographics from the American Enterprise Institute and other significant think tanks and organizations. Lyman and David dive deep this week into mortality, migration, and fertility, and look to better understand the implications for economic growth and human flourishing that various trends in these components represent.
Episode 69: Speaking in Parables
David is once again joined by Father Robert Sirico, co-founder of the Acton Institute and a leading public intellectual in the cause of a free and virtuous society. Fresh off the publication of Father's brand new book, 'Economics and the Parables,' David and he dive deep into the Biblical teachings of economics, the state of affairs on the right, and where integralism commits its fatal flaw.
Episode 68: The Government Is Coming to Help Your Crypto!
And you’re not going to like it! David is joined once again by Louis Gave of Gavekal Research, and the only things they talk about this week are the bond market, the stock market, global wars, foreign currency, crypto, and pets. You won’t want to miss a word of Louie’s brilliant musings!
Episode 67: Questions Not to Ask in a Job Interview
David is joined this week by Andrew Crapuchettes, the past CEO of leading labor-economics firm EMSI and the founder and CEO of RedBalloon.Work. Their discussion ranges from what has escalated the present DEI insanity in corporate America to how all of this will play out. Hint: You will be encouraged by where they see this going, as labor and capital share a destination of the most rational application.
I love this podcast and learn much from it. That said…
“Objection - leading the witness!”
High Value for the Time Investment
This podcast has intelligent speakers who come to share facts and have reasoned debates rather than rhetoric. The pace is comfortable, but not slow. They cover their points thoroughly without beating them. I strongly recommend this for anyone who wants to strengthen their understanding of how our economy works - without being spoon fed a particular point of view.
