Our guest this weekend is Louis Rouanet, a former summer fellow at the Mises Institute. Louis writes frequently for, and he is currently a student at the Paris Institute of Political Studies.

Jeff gets Louis' take on the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, and finds out what the mood is among the French people. They discuss whether the French—like Americans after 9/11—will allow a crackdown on civil liberties in the name of fighting a "war on terror". Jeff and Louis also examine the role that French history (especially in the Middle East and Africa) plays on this whole mess.

If you are interested in what is happening in France from a Libertarian perspective, you will enjoy this interview.

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