Scott Horton Interviews Charles Goyette
Charles Goyette, author and former Antiwar Radio co-contributor, discusses his upcoming new book Red and Blue and Broke All Over: Restoring America’s Free Economy; the “cocaine theory” of economic stimulus; why the bond market bubble – the biggest one yet – has to pop someday; how the US dollar’s weakness is masked by the simultaneous devaluation of all the world’s fiat currencies; why the first major country to institute a gold-backed currency will dominate global finance; why it’s no coincidence the most innovative, cost-competitive industries have the least government intervention; and why economic central planning in a country of 300+ million people is doomed to failure.
