This week David Stockman, director of the Office of Management and Budget under Ronald Reagan, made some comments about the problems with what he called Donald Trump’s “statism,” and with Federal Reserve policy. He was immediately barraged with criticism from Trump supporters who thought he was a “liberal” (as if liberals are concerned about statism or Fed policy). In this episode I discuss what it all means, particularly in light of what Scott Adams told us two episodes ago.
