In honor of the 24th anniversary of the Soviet Union's collapse, our guest this weekend is our old friend Dr. Yuri Maltsez, a senior fellow here at the Mises Institute and a professor of Economics at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Yuri is famous for having been a Soviet economist during the Gorbachev era and defecting to the United States.
Yuri and Jeff discuss Trump-ism, the Bernie Sanders phenomenon, and Western progressives' silly and enduring love affair with socialism. They also discuss what the often-misused terms socialism and fascism really mean.
