Episode 27: Popular Economics with John Tamny, editor of RealClearMarkets
Today's guest is John Tamny. He is the editor of RealClearMarkets.com and the political economy editor at Forbes Magazine. He’s got new book called Popular Economics: What the Rolling Stones, Downton Abbey, and LeBron James Can Teach You About Economics. He’ll pull back to the curtain to explain how economics is one of the simplest and most basic disciplines to understand because according to him everyone is an economist. He’ll explain how the Dallas Cowboys, and Paris Hilton are excellent examples of good and bad tax policy. And how Monday Night Football and HBO's The Sopranos reveal the downside of anti-trust regulation. He'll also explain why the U.S. should eliminate the dividend tax, why Americans should embrace free trade, and why he thinks it's time for us to go back to the gold standard.
