3. The Bunbury Report - Civic Duty Is A Naughty Term

The Bunbury Report - Civic Duty Is A Naughty Term

When did serving the federal government become synonymous with being your brother's keeper? Joey rants--we call it a rant because that's what it is--about the older generation bemoaning the lack of a sense of civic duty among Millennials. Joey fears many of his elders who criticize the younger generation do not intend to encourage voluntary service, but hope to impose an obligation on the young--even if it means conscription--to American nationalism as proclaim by the government in Washington D.C. That is, "civic duty" means compulsory devotion to the red, white, and blue nation-state.

4. Kinsella On Liberty - Intellectual Property As Limits On Property

Kinsella On Liberty - Intellectual Property As Limits On Property

Kinsella on Liberty Podcast, Episode 198. This is a discussion with Ash Navabi, an economics grad student at George Mason, who messaged me this question: Hi Stephan. I’m having a conceptual problem distinguishing IP and tangible property. In Against IP, you said that an IP right gives the IP owner “invariably transfer partial ownership of tangible property from its natural owner to innovators, inventors, and artists.” But doesn’t this apply to every property right? If I own a tract of land, why can’t we say that if I ban you riding across it with your dirt bike, then I am claiming ownership over your dirt bike? I decided to just discuss this with him for the podcast. We ended up veering into a couple tangential issues like auctions for trade secrets in an IP-free world, and so on. Before we talked, I asked him to read: “The Non-Aggression Principle as a Limit on Action, Not on Property Rights,” StephanKinsella.com Blog (Jan. 22, 2010) “IP and Aggression as Limits on Property Rights: How They Differ,”StephanKinsella.com Blog (Jan. 22, 2010) Other materials mentioned during our discussion: Against Intellectual Property Roderick Long, Owning Ideas Means Owning People and The Libertarian Case Against Intellectual Property Rights

7. Frank Marcopolos Reads Ayn Rand's Anthem - Part 3 of 4

Frank Marcopolos Reads Ayn Rand's Anthem - Part 3 of 4

We are bombarded constantly with propaganda related to the positive, social-change power of WE: "Yes We Can!" and "We Are Change!" people chant, and their chants rattle down from the chambers of history into our memories as a positive part of the advancements made by societies. But is the concept of WE really a dangerous trap? Ayn Rand's classic dystopian novella ANTHEM seeks to explore that theme and all of its manifestations. The Libertarian Futurist Society awarded it the Hall of Fame Award in 1987, and it was nominated for a Retrospective Hugo Award for "Best Novella" in 2014. Polemics aside, the story also involves romance, a dashing escape, blood-curdling violence, and scientific intrigue. Written and performed here in audiobook format with an urgent passion, it is a tale to be savored and considered long after it ends.

12. The Jason Stapleton Program - When All The Rich Are Gone

The Jason Stapleton Program - When All The Rich Are Gone

After I finished yesterdays show I was trolling Facebook looking for good stories and chatting with some friends in the private FB group (http://www.jasonstapleton.com/facebook), and I came across a video where Neil Cavuto was interviewing a young college student. This young woman was advocating for three things. 1. "Free" college tuition for all students. 2. That all past student debt be forgiven. 3. A $15/hr minimum wage. The video is a MUST WATCH, and I've included the exchange here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zmji36q8E4o Today on the show I break down this interview as we discuss just how frustrating it is to debate with someone who denies reality. But we have a great deal to learn as libertarians from the way Neil conducted this interview and how we can begin to change the minds of those we disagree with, even when they deny reality. Then it's on to a more philosophical discussion about who owns government housing and what you should be free to do if you live in one of these rental properties. I think you'll like the discussion. Enjoy!

You, Me, And BTC - Bitcoin Only Has Value Because Of The Gub’ment

This is episode 129 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast! Could that possibly be true? Do we only need Bitcoin because it helps us escape the clutches of our violent overlords?

As part of the discussion, we’ll consider how the free market is supposed to work in the first place. Does every free trade really create value for each party involved? We’ll also investigate externalities and fungibility and how such concepts can affect the value of Bitcoin. Then to wrap things up, we’ll have a few laughs about some terms like Brexit, Italeave, and Departugal. Tune in for the ultimate economic chat! Your hosts are Daniel Brown and Tim Baker. Enjoy!

19. The LAVA Spurt - New Hampshire, It’s Like This Too

The LAVA Spurt - New Hampshire, It’s Like This Too

New Hampshire, with a second Libertarian Party representative and cannabis decriminalization. This is the thirty-eighth episode of The LAVA Spurt, New Hampshire It's Like This Too. This episode is brought to you by Praxis, where you can get a full-time job in nine months making $50,000 a year with no college degree. As you guys know, I moved to New Hampshire as part of the Free State Project a more than a year and a half ago. I get the question often from libertarians around the country, “If it's the Free State Project, why isn't is a libertarian utopia yet?” These libertarians missed the operative world, Project. It is exactly that, a project, an experiment if you will, to see if thousands of active, hard-core libertarians in a given geographic area can bring about Liberty in Our Lifetimes. I'm confident that it can, which is why I move here, and it is weeks like this that remind me that we really are helping to make a difference, and with only 10% of the people moved so far, and, including in-state friends, the Free State Project is nearly at 25% of its goal of 20,000 libertarians in the state. This week alone, we had one big win that probably wouldn't have happened without Free State Project participants and native libertarians, along with others, working together to make it happen. The New Hampshire State Senate passed marijuana decriminalization with a vote of 17 to 6. This is highly unusual because the house has sent cannabis decriminalization bills to the senate eight times in the last 10 years, always to be shot down in the senate. The bill the senate passed is slightly different than the original house bill, so it has to go back to the house to be reconciled, then on to the governor's desk. The house will almost certainly pass the reconciliation since they voted 318 to 36 to send the original bill on to the senate. And, the Republican governor has made it clear that he will sign the measure into law, calling ti “common sense marijuana reform.” Another bit of good news is that the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire now has its second sitting state house representative. Joseph Stallcop was elected in November as a Democrat and he made the switch to the Libertarian Party this past Tuesday. This follows Caleb Dyer making the move to the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire from the Republican party back in February. This makes New Hampshire the state with more sitting state reps than the other 49 states combined. And, as Arvin Vorha, the Vice Chair of the national party, said, this is perhaps the youngest political caucus is the world, since both representatives are 21 years old.

20. Economics Detective - The Seattle Minimum Wage Study With Ekaterina Jardim

Economics Detective - The Seattle Minimum Wage Study With Ekaterina Jardim

My guest for this episode is Ekaterina Jardim of the University of Washington. Ekaterina is one of the authors of the new minimum wage study that has been making headlines recently, “Minimum Wage Increases, Wages, and Low-Wage Employment: Evidence from Seattle.” One reason this study is so interesting is that it was funded by the City of Seattle, which is something that governments aren’t obligated or expected to do when they enact major policy changes like these minimum wage hikes. There was a broad theoretical and empirical consensus in the 1980s that higher minimum wages have disemployment effects on the low skilled, and then Card and Krueger (1994) started a new empirical literature that found no evidence of disemployment effects. A major problem with Card and Krueger (1994) and with many of the other studies conducted over the past quarter century was their use of proxy measures for low-skilled workers. Instead of looking at workers who actually earned less than the new minimum wage, these studies looked at groups that they knew to contain many minimum-wage workers: generally teenagers or restaurant workers. This new study does not face this limitation because Washington State requires firms to report both the hours worked and the wages of all workers. One criticism I’m seeing a lot in response to the media coverage of this study is the fact that they had to drop multi-location firms from the sample. The reason for this is that the data only shows what firms people work for, not their location. So if a firm has locations both inside and outside Seattle, you don’t know whether a given worker in that firm belongs in the treatment or the control. Still, despite this limitation, the study’s sample included over 60 percent of workers in Seattle. Furthermore, the study authors surveyed employers and found that the multi-site firms that were excluded from the sample actually reported more reductions in work hours than did the firms that remained in the sample. So if anything, this omission understates rather than overstates the effect of the minimum wage increase. One big concern people have is just how much this study’s results deviate from the established literature. The authors address this by repeating their analysis using employment in the restaurant industry as a proxy for low-skilled labour. They find that using this proxy for low-skilled labour reduces the measured impact of the minimum wage to near zero, consistent with past studies that have looked only at the restaurant industry. It seems that this apparently robust finding, replicated in study after study over the past few decades, was actually a quirk of studying the restaurant industry, which tends to substitute high-skilled labour for low-skilled labour rather than cutting total labour hours as a short-run response to minimum wage hikes.
