In an era of nationalism in American politics, can globalists still make an effective case? What do international institutions like the UN and EU even do for America in the first place? And why is it worth preserving them -- besides the fact that we set many of them up in the first place? AEI's Dalibor Rohac joins the podcast to answer these qu ...…
 
What caused living standards to dramatically rise in the nineteenth century, after thousands of years of stagnant poverty? And is the world on track to continue this wealth explosion, or are we abandoning course in the name of stability? On this episode, Dr. Stephen Davies joins me to explore these questions. Stephen Davies is the Head of Educa ...…
 
What would an actual open borders regime look like? How would it affect those already living in the United States? And why is the case for open borders stronger than the case for restrictionism, or at least the prioritization of high-skill immigrants? Bryan Caplan explores these questions in his most recent book: a work of graphic non-fiction c ...…
 
Why do innovative businesses tend to "cluster" together in tech hubs like Silicon Valley? Why do these companies stay in these expensive cities when they could go to another city with significantly cheaper costs? Can these tech hubs be better governed? And how might other cities catch up? To explore these questions, I am delighted to speak with ...…
 
Examining the impact of innovation on the economy is no simple task. After all, technology eliminates people's jobs in the short term, but it also creates new, better jobs in the long term. Technology also boosts economic productivity, but many fear that such gains will not be fairly distributed in a coming age, as many pessimists envision a fu ...…
 
What is an "intangible asset," and why are we investing so much in them? How are these so-called intangibles reshaping our economy, as well as our fundamental approach to economic concerns? Joining me today to answer these questions is Stian Westlake, the co-author of Capitalism without Capital: The Rise of the Intangible Economy. Stian is also ...…
 
In a time of populist upheaval, classical liberalism has come under fire from many directions. Many are concerned that it is based off of exploitation and promotes inequality. Others focus on those made worse off by creative destruction, or they fear the competition posed by an ascendant China. Deirdre McCloskey disagrees with liberalism's crit ...…
 
What have been the economic costs of the trade conflict between America and China? Who has borne these costs? How will the struggle end? And how acceptable was the status quo before President Trump initiated this trade war? To unpack these questions, I'm delighted to be joined by Scott Lincicome. Scott Lincicome is an international trade attorn ...…
 
Are the tradeoffs between economic and environmental policies really a zero-sum game? How concerned should we be about the rate at which we burn through natural resources? Can societies manage to perform the delicate balancing-act of preserving the planet while continuing to grow economically? Today, Andrew McAfee is on the podcast to talk abou ...…
 
Do too few people own too much of America's wealth? Should we even think about wealth or income inequality as a problem? And if so, what policies would be most effective at combating these issues? Returning to the podcast to explore these questions, and more, is Michael Strain. Michael R. Strain is the John G. Searle Scholar and director of eco ...…
 
Our technological progress in the modern world seems so reliant on developments in Silicon Valley. It begs the question: How did all of that economic power even develop? What was so special about this place -- just another agricultural valley in California -- after World War II? And do the motivations of those early entrepreneurs still align wi ...…
 
Space has become a $400 billion per year business; where does all that money even come from? If space exploration has to privatize in order to stay alive, what will the market demand for this technology look like? And as private sector innovation makes the Final Frontier look more and more like Earth's suburban backyard, could we be overthinkin ...…
 
In our populist moment, do economists still have a place in policy debates? Did Milton Friedman's solutions to the 1970's economic problems create modern inequality? Who have markets helped, and who have they hurt? And should our politicians scrap economic narratives in order to create a more equitable world? Here to consider these questions is ...…
 
Will the United Kingdom crash out of the European Union without a deal? When will the Chinese trade war end? And how will the global - and US - economy be affected by these developments. Today, returning guest Desmond Lachman joins me to explore these questions. Desmond Lachman is a resident fellow at AEI, where he studies the global macroecono ...…
 
How did the ancient Greeks think about technology? Were they techno-optimists or pessimists? How do their myths - of Pandora, Odysseus, Talos, and Icarus - parallel to the technological possibilities that we've uncovered in the present? And what can we learn from these narratives? In this episode, I explore these questions and more with Dr. Adr ...…
 
How have the Trump tax cuts affected America's economy, or do we even know yet? Have they stimulated investment as promised? More broadly, what solutions are at our disposal to fix the deficits these cuts have generated? What are we to make of proposals to repeal the Cadillac tax or index the capital gains tax to inflation? And which tax polici ...…
 
Are large tech firms like Google, Apple, Amazon, and Facebook unassailable monopolies? Is there anything new about the way these companies try and maintain their market dominance? And have antitrust activists ever successfully predicted which big businesses will be forever companies? On this episode, Cato's Ryan Bourne discusses his recent pape ...…
 
In October 2017, astronomers in Hawaii detected something that astronomers had never detected before: an interstellar object passing through our Solar System. Something from out there -- really out there -- was zipping through our planetary neighborhood at nearly 200,000 miles per hour. Scientists at the University of Hawaii dubbed it "Oumuamua ...…

For more than 20 years, since the birth of the internet age as we know it, Section 230 has provided websites with imm ...…
 
Does America need venture capital to achieve high rates of economic growth? How can budding start-ups get it? And what do the big tech firms of the future look like to investors today? On this episode, Andreessen Horowitz's Scott Kupor discusses his new book "Secrets of Sand Hill Road: Venture Capital and How to Get It." Scott Kupor is managing ...…
 
What does Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal get wrong about lowering carbon emissions? What is ecomodernism? And how can nuclear power play a roll in our high energy future? On this episode, the Breakthrough Institute's Alex Trembath discusses how we can achieve a high-growth, high-energy future with a smaller carbon footprint. Ale ...…
 
Is the US falling behind China and the world in innovation and technology? Why doesn't America expand public funding for scientific research?

On this episode, economics professor Jonathan Gruber discusses his new book "Jump-Starting ...…
 
Why do we love to hate big business? Are American corporations monopolistic? Are CEOs overpaid? And is Big Tech really a threat to our democracy? On this episode, economics professor Tyler Cowen discusses his new book "Big Business: A Love Letter to an American Anti-Hero." Tyler Cowen is the Holbert L. Harris Chair of Economics at George Mason ...…
 
What is a 'loonshot'? Why are they so often dismissed? And how can teams, companies, and governments nurture more of these great ideas? On this episode, author and biotechnology entrepreneur Safi Bahcall discusses his new book "Loonshots: How to Nurture the Crazy Ideas That Win Wars, Cure Diseases, and Transform Industries." After working as a ...…
