Our great friend Daniel Lacalle joins the show from Madrid to discuss the post-Covid economy from the framework of his 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.
