David Stockman, John Tamny, Ronald Stöferle and Janet Lee-Sheriff are guests this week on the radio show.
Stockman explains in a Fox interview why Trump economics are doomed from the start. John provides details regarding Trump economics and Ronald provides insights into how you can use Austrian economics to profit in markets and avoid some of the pitfalls many followers of Austrian economics frequently experience.
We rely this week on a Fox Business interview with Stockman and two interviews conducted by Jeff Deist, President of the Mises Institute, with John and Ronald. Michael Oliver gets this week off. We anticipate he will be with us on the March 14th show.
