The Tom Woods Show

The founder and chairman of the Mises Institute joins me for some great questions from my Supporting Listeners: where he sees us having success, what he thinks of the New York Times op-ed by the anonymous "senior official," how he became Ron Paul's chief of staff, why he doesn't bother defending himself against left-libertarians, his views on the crisis in the Catholic Church, what he would have done differently if he were starting the Mises Institute today -- plus, the man who ordered him not to start the Mises Institute, and more.

And there is no better slayer of Keynesian errors than my guest, Bob Murphy.

We hear on a regular basis that workers, whether because of free trade, or capitalism generally, or whatever other institution or trend, are getting the short end of the stick. An ever-smaller share of national income is making its way into workers' pockets. But is that really true? Gene Epstein joins me to get to the bottom of this question.

I was delighted to be the special guest for the 100th episode of the Scottish Liberty Podcast, featuring Tom Laird, who runs the Scottish Libertarian Party, and Antony Sammeroff, who's such an effective defender of libertarian ideas. And what a variety of topics we hit -- including my five least favorite presidents. Enjoy!

It's important to cut through the exaggerated platitudes to the heart of who John McCain was, lest a misplaced desire to carry on his "legacy" cause further harm to the United States and the world. Scott Horton joins me for this frank appraisal.

Libertarian worlds collided earlier this month when Reason magazine editor-at-large Matt Welch joined me on Michael Malice's program. as you no doubt realize, there has been plenty of infighting among Libertarians and libertarian institutions over the years, and I think we hashed quite a bit of that out in a very productive conversation. In today's episode, Michael and I review and assess that mini-summit.
