At the end of January 2019, Donald Trump will deliver his annual state of the union speech. But what is the real state of life in America? Why are we so divided, politically and otherwise? How fragile is the economy, and how much longer can debt and deficits go unaddressed? Will culture wars destroy any remaining sense of a shared American vision? Is a cold civil war—or worse—inevitable?

Join economist Robert Murphy, Mises Institute president Jeff Deist, Praxis apprentice Lena Wang, and talk radio host David Gornoski for a radical and unvarnished look at the state of America in 2019. As always, we'll apply an Austrian, revisionist, and libertarian perspective to the facts and rhetoric coming out of Washington, DC. You won't want to miss it!

  • Robert Murphy: The Real State of the Economy
  • Jeff Deist: Politics: How Something Beats Nothing
