Gene Epstein of Barron's joins me to discuss Richard Thaler, this year's recipient of the Nobel Prize in economics, who has helped to popularize "behavioral economics," and how to deal with situations in which people behave "irrationally" (that is, unlike the way neoclassical economics expects them to).

We recorded this episode live in Orlando on September 30, 2017. It features Eric July, Michael Malice, Dave Smith, Michael Boldin, and Tom DiLorenzo, along with some surprise guests (Dave Smith and Michael Boldin were also surprises, not being on the official bill).
 
Lots of fun: Michael Malice dominates Part I, while Part II includes a Dad joke-off between Eric July and me, as well as the roast. Enjoy!

Haven't labor unions improved the standard of living of American workers? Why, wouldn't we not even have the weekend without them? My father belonged to the Teamsters, so I have a natural inclination to side with unions, but the facts won't let me, and in this episode I explain why.

I keep hearing success stories from people who got started in eCommerce at my urging, so I finally decided to make an episode out of a few of them. A little good news for a change!

In 2010 I addressed the annual meeting of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. I spoke about government and health care, yes, but I also spoke about state nullification -- not your usual topic at a physicians' gathering.

It's fashionable again for libertarians to urge the abandonment of the nonaggression principle, the bedrock of our entire philosophy. It's dumb, you see. But what they propose in its place is dumb x 1000.

With Donald Trump publicly undermining Rex Tillerson and calling Kim Jong Un "Rocketman," should we be concerned about a potential nuclear conflict? Is there a strategy behind Trump's comments and actions? Michael Malice joins me for an update.
