Joseph Salerno, senior fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, discusses the praxeology of war-making, the difference between entrepreneurs and plutocrats, the unfortunate state of affairs that compels major U.S. businesses to employ Washington lobbyists, the geopolitics of Middle East oil and why foreign policy is war by another name.

  1. Oops. Here you go: http://mises.org/story/2405

  2. great interview, but typo in title and first sentence; should be sAlerno

  3. Why are we here ? What´s the meaning of life ? We are here in order to help each other as Jesus said in other words. But he didn´t say why. The Tibetan Book of the Great Liberation by W.Y. Evans-Wentz, Oxford Uni Press, explains why. Instead we are making war and making Earth a hell because we believe life is a one-time only show. Many people in United Bluff and elsewhere believe in the Bishops´(meetings in Constantinople in 3rd and 4th century to decide what Jesus said and did and what not) Black Book.

  4. Is there anyway possible that you can provide us with a copy of the full text of the article for our own research purposes. Thanks

  5. You cant run the world as a business and empires always fail.

  6. Too many economics experts subscribe to Malthusian theory and as a result embrace war as a means of population control at the obvious threat to humanity of all kinds. Junior Senator Warmonger (I-Lieberman) from Connecticut is traveling the world to do just that except the part of humanity he wishes to limit happen to be innocent Muslims starting with those whose land has been taken in Palestine.

  7. Love your show ….except for one thing.

    The obnoxious noise that comes blasting out of my speakers whenever I click on the play button is like being assaulted with a water cannon.

  8. Good interview, but Bill Gates is maybe not the best example for an enterpreteur. He only became a billionaire because the state enforces intellectual property and therefore allowed him to charge for something which can not be scarce.
