Another excellent podcast with Robert Wenzel, this time interviewing Richard Ebeling about the current world situation, how we got here, and where we may be going next.
Although there is much of interest throughout the interview, the best bit is the last five minutes, in which Mr Ebeling describes the “sham” that is the Russian economy (to go with the ghost city Keynesian aggregate GDP fabrication that is the Chinese economy).
