The Tom Woods Show

Michael Douma, Assistant Research Professor at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown, and Director of the Georgetown Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics, joins me to discuss what it means to be a classical liberal, or libertarian, historian -- do we have our own methods, are we telling a different story, or what precisely are we doing?

But there is in fact such a thing as libertarian class theory, because in libertarian theory there are distinct groups of exploiters and exploited. Gary Chartier joins me to discuss the history and development of libertarian class theory.

Historian Brion McClanahan and I begin by discussing the conservative movement's wary and sometimes hostile reception of his book criticizing Alexander Hamilton. From there, we trace out how Brion went from conventional conservative to Old Right/libertarian. (We love these stories, don't we?)

Steve Clayton is a former VP at LabCorp, the Fortune 500 company so many of us use to have blood work done. He left behind this prestigious, very high-paying job to strike out as an entrepreneur.

We talk about his own story, trends in eCommerce, and what he recommends today.
