Arguments for the State Don’t Work

16th September 2014      by: Tom Woods     

Today I spoke once again to Michael Huemer, a professor of philosophy at the University of Colorado at Boulder and author of The Problem of Political Authority: An Examination of the Right to Coerce and the Duty to Obey. When we last spoke, Huemer went through the key arguments for the legitimacy of the state — the social contract, democracy, etc. — and showed why they fail. Today we focused on the Hobbesian argument for the state, and then focused on some of the problems with democracy, as laid out in a key chapter of Huemer’s book. Have a listen!

8th September 2014      by: Tom Woods     

Today I talked to Deirdre McCloskey, the author, most recently, of The Bourgeois Virtues and Bourgeois Dignityabout how the West got rich, and why the traditional explanations don’t work. Very interesting and important stuff.

It features a Prosperity Machine that — what else? — prints money. I spoke to Gunnlaugur Jonsson, executive producer, on my show. Have a listen, and get tickets!
