This week, we feature a recent episode of Ryan McMaken's Radio Rothbard podcast.

We continue to hear about how capitalism and industrialization distract us from the important things in life. In reality, the historical record shows that it was industrialization and capitalism that propagated the conditions under which we can afford to treat each other more humanely.

Radio Rothbard is a series of short podcasts based on columns and research from the Mises Institute's Mises Wire. Topics include economics, comparative politics, and history. Subscribe to Radio Rothbard today on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, Soundcloud, or via RSS.
