The Tom Woods Show

What a pleasure to be joined once again by David Stockman! I strongly urge you to visit his blog and check out his latest book, The Great Deformation (see below).

Issues Discussed

  • Financial reporters whose articles take Keynesianism as an unstated starting point
  • Is the apparent Chinese prosperity real?
  • If China’s economy suffers a reversal, how would this affect the American consumer and economy?
  • Why did a Harvard professor recently urge the abolition of cash?
  • How can Paul Krugman claim that nonexistent “austerity” failed, but not think Japan’s experiment in Keynesianism failed?
  • What’s the story in Japan?
