Today, I am joined by Steve Horwitz! Steve is the Distinguished Professor of Free Enterprise in the Department of Economics at Ball State University in Muncie, IN.
Listen as Steve and I discuss a number of economic topics, starting with an in-depth discussion on minimum wage, universal basic income (UBI), automation, and artificial intelligence. Next, we discuss trade in the era of Trump, focusing specifically on the differences between “free-trade” vs “fair-trade” and the dangers of economic nationalism. We conclude today’s episode with a critique of democratic socialism while presenting a realistic libertarian alternative.
"There's no secret free trader hiding deep in Trump. He is what he appears to be. There is no depth to Donald J. Trump." -Steve Horwitz

2016 changed how the world viewed politics. This change gave prominence to the libertarian, limited-government ideology. Brian Nichols is an adamant supporter of libertarianism and the philosophy of “Don’t hurt people. Don’t take people’s stuff.” We sort through the Republican Party’s flaws, the dangers of big government, and the importance of personal responsibility.

On this special episode of The Brian Nichols Show, Brian is joined with former White House/Congressional policy adviser and former FreedomWorks Vice President, Dean Clancy! Brian and Dean dig into the the latest budget deals, the Libertarian Party and promoting libertarian policy, and discuss how we can address the gun control issue after the latest public shooting.
Is the Trump budget actually a fiscally conservative budget? Is it better to have a government controlled by one political party, or split control between two political parties? Is the Libertarian Party actually the best means to promote libertarian principles and to enact libertarian policy? And finally, how do gun rights activists win the debate with gun control advocates?
