We have reached the end of Murray Rothbard's definitive treatise Man, Economy, and State

Dr. Patrick Newman joins the show to wrap up the final chapters—labeled separately as Power and Market—showing Rothbard's economic analysis of government interventions. Newman and Jeff Deist discuss this quintessentially Rothbardian treatment of everything from price controls to taxes to subsidies to "public ownership," presented as always with clarity and devastating logic. Want to find out why the original publisher thought these concluding chapters were too hot for an economics treatise? Don't miss this episode!
