Following on from the post below, I thought I’d put up this entertaining speech from Jeffrey A Tucker, discussing the benefits of what J K Galbraith condemned as ‘The Affluent Society’. (For added pleasure, read Rothbard’s “John Kenneth Galbraith and the sin of affluence“).
From the YouTube blurb:
“Jeffrey A. Tucker at “The Delusion of Good Government”: the Mises Circle in Colorado Springs, Colorado; 18 September 2010. Sponsored by Pikes Peak Economics Club. Includes an introduction by Douglas French.”
