Keynesians Unable to Account for Myriad of Economic Variables in Central PlanTodd welcomes Liz Jaluage of Students for Liberty to the show to discuss her views on libertarian philosophy, the failings of the Keynesian central economic planners, her preference to see a more Austrian based market economy. Liz maintains that the philosophy based on the non-aggression principle along the lines of Thomas Jefferson’s “Rightful Liberty” provides a better platform for better economic growth and a more peaceful society. Liz points to the failings of the socialist big government fanatics and their paternalistic attitude is stifling not personal achievement and crushing private initiatives despite their stated “good intentions” to wit are wholly rooted in the plunder of wealth redistribution dictated by the Political Class. Liz opines that if the goal is a more peaceful, generous, productive society, individuals require freedom from a small designing cabal of men and women living in a bubble in Washington, attempting in vain to consider an endless amount of variables for a nation of 300 million plus individuals.
Liz further indicates she is skeptical about political office but she nevertheless plans on throwing her hat into the ring to help push the dial and conversation towards the principles of Liberty. She highlights some of her work as editorial writer at Liberty.me, founded by the former head of the Mises Institute, Jeffrey Tucker.
