This weekend’s show features Jeff’s recent appearance on the radio show Turning Hard Times into Good Times hosted by Jay Taylor. They discuss the big picture aspects of the US economy—namely, what's going on civilizationally with debt and central banking, and the seemingly endless civil wars in the middle east. They also deconstruct the poisoned political landscape in Washington DC, despite the lack of any meaningful policy differences between the two dominant ideologies of today: neoliberalism and neoconservatism. This is an eye-opening discussion about the state of things in DC and beyond.

Note: The views expressed on are not necessarily those of the Mises Institute.
