The Tom Woods Show

With libertarians being called "fascists" and even "Nazis" by so-called progressives, I thought it might be useful to review what Adolf Hitler himself believed about economic theory. You'll never guess: it turns out he prefers government control over a free market.

Emily Horowitz, a professor at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, was the overwhelming winner (measured objectively by audience opinions before and after) of a debate earlier this year at the Soho Forum on this very topic. Most people assumed no case could be made for her side, but by the time she was done, nearly three quarters of the room agreed with her. We discuss the subject in today's episode.

I strongly urge you to listen to this episode. These are my opening remarks to this year's Mises University program at the Mises Institute. I discuss two sets of ungrateful people. The first: socialists. I go into detail about the improvements in the lives of everyone, but especially the desperately poor, under the free market. The numbers are frankly miraculous. And all these folks can think to do is shout at their employers through bullhorns.
 
Then I take on those libertarians who spend their time denouncing Ron Paul, Murray Rothbard, Walter Block, and other prolific and productive libertarians. This section is especially savage, but not gratuitously so. Just the right amount of savage.

In popular discourse, consumer safety is one of the most frequently cited reasons for government oversight. Neil Thanedar, my guest today, is co-founder and CEO of Labdoor, which can accomplish more than the FDA even claims to be able to, and more efficiently and inexpensively.
