Ep. 185 David Stockman Joins Us to Shred Economist’s Love Letter to the Fed

23 April 2019     |     Tom Woods     |     3

Greg Mankiw, a professor of economics at Harvard, wrote an article for the New York Times urging America to preserve the Federal Reserve he loves. And what is that? A nonpolitical, nonpartisan, scientific economic management agency staffed by selfless advocates for the public good. David Stockman, director of the Office of Management and Budget under Ronald Reagan, joins us to dismantle it.
