By day Jeff Booth is an entrepreneur and builder of companies, but now he's written one of the most compelling and important books of 2020. The Price of Tomorrow: Why Deflation is the Key to an Abundant Future makes the case for a better and more prosperous world simply by accepting the natural order of falling prices and fast-improving technology. The book is entirely free of jargon, ideology, and politics, yet pulls no punches when it comes to describing the fiscal and monetary mess we're in. But it is an optimistic book, with a message for every worldview: deflation is a good thing, it is inevitable, and we should embrace it rather than fight it!

Mr. Booth was kind enough to join the show, and has a fascinating discussion with Jeff Deist you don't want to miss!
