As Ron Paul once wrote, "politicians who compromise and seek bipartisanship are the most dangerous among the entire crew in Washington." This week Trump began making his Clinton-esque pivot toward being such a president, making deals with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer on the debt ceiling and immigration.

On Mises Weekends, Jeff is joined by former Harvard Crimson and Bills linebacker Jake Lindsey. Fresh off a pre-season tryout and looking to continue a career in the NFL, Jake joins Jeff for a candid interview about his two passions, football and Austrian economics.

And in case you missed them, here are this weeks Mises Wire and FedWatch articles, covering a wide array of topics:
