Freedom Or Equality with Jeff Deist

In this podcast, I discuss with Jeff Deist the post-Covid economy from the framework of my newest book, Freedom or Equality.

Real human cooperation happens via markets and property, not government or central bank edicts. Socially beneficial behavior needs the right incentives—without prices and profits, we have no way to measure merit or benefit. 

If leaders are serious about economic recovery after lockdowns, they need to dispense with authoritarian controls and let markets work. Lacalle considers interest rates, inequality, stakeholder theory, global debt, and much more in this powerful discussion of today’s economic reality.

    Given that a lot of manufacturers started from zero or very limited activity during the lockdown, even the smallest easing of restrictions will see a spike in optimism.

    This is hard for many to accept, a very tough reality for some years to come.

  • Ian Burgess

    The numbers don't lie Daniel! Keep up the great content! Thank you for sharing your interview with Jeff Deist.

    Most of the economy is propped up in nonsense activities instead of providing basic needs for regular people. The only way to get rid of debt quickly is to to stop spending unnecessarily.
