In today’s flagship Lions of Liberty podcast, Marc is joined by economist, author and podcast host Robert Murphy to discuss his new book Contra Krugman: Smashing the Errors of American’s Most Famous Keynesian as well as his podcast by the same name, co-hosted with Tom Woods. Bob explains why he became an Austrian economist, why he believes it’s important for libertarians and free market advocates to understand Austrian economics and the business cycle, and how Tom Woods goaded him into starting the Contra Krugman podcast. Along the way, Bob details some of the more ludicrous ideas of Krugman, including his pushing the idea of spending billions of dollars to prepare for a fake alien invasion (no, seriously.)
Discussed in this episode:
- Check out Contra Krugman: Smashing the Errors of American’s Most Famous Keynesian
