Some county governments in Colorado have made it clear that they don't intend to adhere to the governor's ongoing edicts requiring business closures and mandating social distancing. And it's unclear that the governor is willing to burn the political capital to force county governments to do so.Original article by Ryan McMaken: https://mises.org/pow…
 
Propaganda kills, but it also works. Many of the same tactics employed to destroy opposition to the Iraq War are being used today against opponents of lockdowns.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/coronavirus-propaganda-mimics-war-propagandaThis Audio Mises Wire is generously sponsored by Christopher Condon. Narrated by Millian Quinteros.…
 
Neither voters nor politicians watch the bureaucracy very carefully, so they respond as one might expect—advancing their own and their favorites' interests, at the expense of the public they are supposedly working for.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/why-congressional-oversight-bureaucracy-no-such-thingThis Audio Mises Wire is generously sp…
 
Americans were once harangued by government "experts" about the need to slow down on highways in order to save lives. Few listened. Today, laws demanding everyone "stay at home" may suffer a similar fate.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/what-failed-55-mph-speed-limit-law-tells-us-about-covid-lockdownsThis Audio Mises Wire is generously spon…
 
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. The prolockdown crowd has been making extraordinary claims. Meanwhile, they have produced little evidence to support their claims.See the original article by Ryan McMaken: https://mises.org/power-market/cdc-slashed-covid-19-fatality-rate-fraction-earlier-estimate-used-justify-lockdownsNarrated by…
 
Libertarians know Michael Boldin as the founder of the Tenth Amendment Center (TenthAmendmentCenter.com), but he started out as a leftist promoting clubs in LA and other major cities. In this fun conversation, Michael explains his origins and how he ended up advising state governments on how to kick the NSA out of their backyard.For more, see BobMu…
 
There's now no difference between monetary policy and other government programs designed to prop up firms, industries, and other favored groups. The Fed is simply another government planning agency.Original article by Samuele Murtinu and Peter G. Klein: https://mises.org/wire/fed-doing-whatever-it-takes-prop-economy-thats-very-bad-thingThis Audio M…
 
The state currently enjoys a vastly unbalanced share of the power within a society, such an arrangement is not in any way preordained, and the assumption that it must be betrays a narrowness of vision and a lack of historical knowledge.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/how-we-might-respond-pandemic-were-society-not-so-dominated-stateThis Aud…
 
The 1958 pandemic killed twice as many people as COVID-19 has so far. Yet, the economy in 2020 has collapsed far worse than either in 1958 or the far worse pandemic of 1918.Read the original article by Ryan McMaken: https://mises.org/wire/why-didnt-1958-and-1918-pandemics-destroy-economy-hint-its-lockdownsNarrated by Daniella Bassi.…
 
Price inflation is so difficult to predict, because there are so many moving parts: money supply, demand, money velocity, and supply of goods and services.Read the original article by Thorsten Polleit: https://mises.org/wire/prevent-problematic-inflation-we-need-more-production-which-means-theres-trouble-aheadNarrated by Daniella Bassi.…
 
Every successful business is built on empathic understanding of customers’ preferences. As we know from the theories of Austrian economics, the preference scales of every individual are highly subjective, idiosyncratic, context-dependent, and highly changeable. How does an entrepreneur develop the appropriate level of understanding? Can this unders…
 
The weird thing about dialectical materialism is that Marx seems to have cobbled it together from two philosophies that contradicted each other.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/big-reason-mises-rejected-marxs-dialectical-materialismThis Audio Mises Wire is generously sponsored by Christopher Condon. Narrated by Millian Quinteros.…
 
Most of the world's regimes enthusiastically destroyed their economies and consigned millions to destitution (and a rising tide of resulting health problems) in pursuit of a trendy and unproven theory. There's still not evidence that the lockdowns worked.This Audio Mises Wire is generously sponsored by Christopher Condon. Narrated by Millian Quinte…
 
With such chaos, confusion, and incompetence playing out, it is little wonder that more and more Pennsylvanians are refusing to obey lockdown decrees.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/shutdown-may-soon-collapse-pennsylvania-thanks-local-resistanceThis Audio Mises Wire is generously sponsored by Christopher Condon. Narrated by Millian Quinter…
 
In theory, it is possible to adjust inflation measures to account for the many constant changes in prices resulting from changing demand, quality, and innovations. But it's essentially impossible to execute these adjustments accurately.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/why-official-inflation-measures-dont-workThis Audio Mises Wire is generou…
 
Some claim "the rich" will be fine—or even better off—after the COVID panic destroys the economy for most of us. But there's a problem: the wealthy depend heavily on an economy fueled by the production and consumption of all workers and entrepreneurs.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/were-all-together-not-way-you-thinkThis Audio Mises Wire i…
 
Thanks to past interventions, the economy is now rife with malinvestments and prices that don't reflect real demand. The solution is to allow deflation and other types of painful readjustment. Otherwise true growth will elude us.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/how-government-intervention-triggers-depressionsThis Audio Mises Wire is generou…
 
Central banks have decided that one of their main missions is to prevent deflation. But this only ends up causing the malinvestments that lead to economic busts.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/lets-hope-deflation-headed-our-wayThis Audio Mises Wire is generously sponsored by Christopher Condon. Narrated by Millian Quinteros.…
 
Paul Krugman is now claiming that reopening the economy and allowing people to go to work almost surely will *cause* a depression.Original article: mises.org/wire/krugman-we-need-more-unemployment-save-us-unemploymentThis Audio Mises Wire is generously sponsored by Christopher Condon. Narrated by Millian Quinteros.…
 
For many parents, the ongoing closure of public schools will just reinforce growing suspicions that public schools just aren't worth it anymore. Maybe they never were.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/school-closures-are-big-threat-power-public-schoolsThis Audio Mises Wire is generously sponsored by Christopher Condon.

Today, we're presenting a…
 
Why are Americans so entrepreneurially focused? We descend from “the crazies” — the other thinkers who came from around the world, dissatisfied with their lives, and willing to cross oceans and borders to get to a place that offers no security but offers freedom. They took the ultimate entrepreneurial leap. We got the nut cases. Steve Jobs, for exa…
 
Panic over the COVID-19 virus has led to the closure of many schools and new forays into education outside the government school system. Many will find that they don't need the state's schools at all.Read the original article by José Niño: https://mises.org/wire/thanks-shutdowns-many-will-learn-public-schooling-isnt-all-essential-after-allNarrated …
 
Hacking off soldiers' limbs was a favorite technique of Civil War surgeons, largely because doctors wanted to avoid blame for later cases of gangrene. So doctors erred on the "safe" side. Many patients may have disagreed.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/hacksawing-economy-how-lockdowns-are-tradition-civil-war-surgeonsThis Audio Mises Wire i…
 
With their bizarre and extreme lockdowns, governments are forcing very low-risk populations to endure social isolation and unemployment. The mental health effects will be significant.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/state-lockdowns-are-creating-mental-health-disasterThis Audio Mises Wire is generously sponsored by Christopher Condon. Narrat…
 
Media outlets, both left and right, are mostly narrative driven. Also, journalists have a tendency to lazily reprint whatever "experts" say. This makes media reporting thoroughly unreliable.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/why-media-coverage-covid-19-has-been-so-badThis Audio Mises Wire is generously sponsored by Christopher Condon. Narrate…
 
Jeff Deist and economist Daniel Lacalle present a special live seminar on the COVID-19 crisis and what it means for your economic future.Is the world headed for another Great Depression, or will we enjoy a V-shaped recovery later this year as the virus fades and economies reopen? Are governments and central banks making the situation better or wors…
 
Presenting "saving lives" as a more or less equal alternative to commerce and community is a misguided view of what the lockdown debate is really all about.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/viruses-versus-lockdowns-its-not-about-tradeoffsSee also "The Accad & Koka Report" at https://mises.org/accad&kokaThis Audio Mises Wire is generously spo…

Narrated by Millian Quinteros.…
 
How do the shutdowns increase ageism? Because millions have arguably been thrown out of work in the name of protecting the elderly. The resulting economic devastation comes at the expense of younger workers, parents, students, and families.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/how-covid-19-lockdowns-will-increase-resentment-elderlyThis Audio Mis…
 
The EU has now become essentially a makeshift, lawless regime designed to prop up bankrupt states. So much so, in fact, that even the German supreme court has become alarmed.Original article: mises.org/wire/germany-pushes-back-against-ecbs-bailoutsThis Audio Mises Wire is generously sponsored by Christopher Condon. Narrated by Millian Quinteros.…
 
When we talk about entrepreneurial alertness to opportunity, it can sound pretty vague. What exactly does that mean? How is alertness translated into profitable action?This week’s guest, David Bienstock, provided us with a very precise example. He had just started his media buying services business when a phone call came in. Do you provide service …
 
In this crisis the money supply has already increased far more than during the last crisis. But it's hard to say when this will produce inflation because we're still in the midst of a demand shock and a collapse in oil prices.Original article: https://mises.org/wire/how-crisis-differs-2008-2009-financial-crisisThis Audio Mises Wire is generously sp…

Economist David R. Henderson returns to the podcast to explain some of the major problems with the so-called stimulus bill, including its payment of $600 a week to the unemployed, as well as perverse payments to airlines. He then discusses the protest he helped organize against California's lockdown.For more, see BobMurphyShow.com…
 
Bob Murphy tackles some Keynesian and MMT fallacies that have resurfaced in light of the response to the coronavirus. In particular, he responds to Larry Summers who viewed the lockdown as being akin to workers staying home over the weekend, and then to Neil Irwin on twitter, who approvingly retweeted a thread arguing that it was mathematically *im…
 
Levi Machado is a Brazilian pathologist who trained and now works in the NYC hospital network. As a fan of libertarian writers, Levi recognizes the problems with coercive "solutions" to a pandemic. However, Levi explains in the discussion what COVID-19 actually can do to the body, and why it's not really comparable to the flu. The conversation wrap…
 
Although politicians lecture private companies for raising prices, it is governments that have for decades raised the prices of goods and services by limiting supply and raising costs.Original article: mises.org/wire/governments-are-real-price-gougersThis Audio Mises Wire is generously sponsored by Christopher Condon.
