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.

  1. By the way, the browser title for all Antiwar Radio pages still says "and Charles Goyette." No biggie, thought you should know.

  2. HA! Guess I should have listened first, huh? But now that I have, I think you should take it off even more. What a load of Austrian/gold BS. I noticed the only prescription he had was cut defense. Well it doesn’t take an economist to know that. Stick to foreign policy, Scott. You know it really well and you have lots of great people to talk about it with. In case any body wants to hear why he’s wrong, I’ll come back. But I’ll leave you with a question: what in the world is a bond market bubble?

  3. Bring back cowrie shells!

  4. Dude, what's up with deleting comments that still show up on the device I posted them on?

  5. I wrote this from my iPhone, so it didn't show up here. Just want to say for the record that I don't really care about the browser title bar text. Do what you like. I was being provocative. Here's the comment:
