Ep. 172 The Government Shutdown: A Big Libertarian Experiment?
Krugman points out that even though Republicans have been calling for limited government for as long as anyone can remember, now that the federal government shutdown is upon us they’re desperate to get emergency funding for various government functions. In this episode, we discuss this argument, as well as whether the shutdown is really a “big libertarian experiment,” as Krugman claims.
