Ep. 77 It’s Easy to Criticize, But How Good Are Self-Proclaimed Free Market People at Devising Alternatives?
Contra Krugman with Bob Murphy and Tom Woods

They’re also flubbing the way they’re corporate tax reform. This isn’t because their leader, Donald Trump, is a bozo, but because they themselves are shysters who are good at sloganeering but bad at governing.
