Ep. 185 David Stockman Joins Us to Shred Economist’s Love Letter to the Fed
Contra Krugman with Bob Murphy and Tom Woods
Greg Mankiw, a professor of economics at Harvard, wrote an article for the New York Times urging America to preserve the Federal Reserve he loves. And what is that? A nonpolitical, nonpartisan, scientific economic management agency staffed by selfless advocates for the public good. David Stockman, director of the Office of Management and Budget under Ronald Reagan, joins us to dismantle it. Show notes for Ep. 185
