Economics & Humor. Bob is the absolute Best

A Truly Empathetic Intellectual
Weirdly enough, I have more Bob Murphy books than I do Tom Woods books. It’s not that one’s better than the other. I do appreciate a book that will outline what is systemically wrong with the “so-called” economy or what really happened in a given time period, but I highly value a book that will help me protect and improve “my economy” today. That’s why I like “How Privatized Banking Really Works”.
So glad this finally exists!
Bob Murphy is an absolute gem! Love him as a guest on The Tom Woods Show, Host on Contra Krugman, and as an all around good guy! I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for his solo show! Listened to the first few episodes... excellent!
