Recently, Jordan Peterson asked who he should have as a guest on his show to talk about Austrian economics, and Gene Epstein's name came up. In this episode, I ask Gene what he would say to Dr. Peterson, or to anyone looking to understand what Austrian economics is all about, what sets it apart from other schools, and why its insights are so important right now.
Gene is the former Barrons economics and books editor, and now hosts the Soho Forum. I spoke with him last month about where he thinks the economy is headed and what individuals can do to protect themselves, here.
The Soho Forum can be found here.
And if you'd like to learn more about Austrian economics, there is no better place to start than the Mises Institute.
I spoke with Mises Institute President, Jeff Deist last December, about whether it might be time for America to break up.
