Economist Donald J. Boudreaux joined host Ben Domenech to discuss the long-lasting economic impact of the government shutdown. Boudreaux is a Professor of Economics at George Washington University, and serves as a Senior Fellow at the Mercatus Center and The Fund for American Studies.
Boudreaux wrote an article earlier this week titled "Who is Making Decisions About Our Lives?" in which he outlined the limited knowledge American leaders have. The American people also don't understand, he argued, the government's decision to have the Federal Reserve print money doesn't create actual wealth in the form of any goods and services.
