The Mises Institute hosts the first ever live episode of the Contra Krugman Show.

How does Paul Krugman, the New York Times's resident Keynesian and patron saint of leftwing economics, get everything so completely wrong? Bob Murphy and Tom Woods not only have a great time skewering Krugman, but also teach you how to refute the economic fallacies that so many of your family and friends fall for.

Recorded at Seattle's historic Town Hall on 21 May 2016. Includes an introduction by Betsy Hansen, opening remarks by Bob Murphy (2:41), The Contra Krugman Show (9:45), and closing remarks by Tom Woods (41:12) and Jeff Deist (50:21).

Special thanks to the Harvey Allison family for making this event possible.
