Ep. 10 Terrorism Creates Jobs

21 November 2015     |     Tom Woods     |     29

Krugman’s commentary on the Paris attacks is partly correct, with the usual nonsense thrown in. Even better his is blog post earlier this week, assessing whether there might be good economic effects from the terrorist attack if the French government spends enough money in response. That kind of analysis is why Contra Krugman exists, folks.

Scott Horton joins us this week.
