We discuss yet another Christmas classic from the 80's, Trading Places, starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd in a modern-day (progressive) interpretation of the Prince and the Pauper.

We are joined by Trey Weaver of the Supervision Webcast (the newest member of the Libertarian Union, and all around good guy) to discuss this nature vs. nurture, social engineering, comedy that has perhaps even more relevance today than it did in 1983.

Robert and I analyze popular movies from a Rothbardian/AnarchoCapitalist perspective.

We use movies as a starting point for people who may not be familiar with this way of thinking.   Discussion of the plot and decisions that characters make in relation to morality and violations of the non-aggression principle are our bread and butter.

We also will highlight and discuss any themes or lessons from Austrian Economics that we can glean from the film.

The point is to show what anarchy actually is with instances that are presented in film.

We publish at least once per week; and occasionally will do specials surrounding holidays or events (elections/olympics) and have guests.

Welcome to the party pals!

Kyle from Foreign Policy Focus joins us to talk about the Brad Pitt movie, War Machine which is a satire on the quagmire of US foreign policy in Afghanistan. The story follows a charismatic general who in a policy of "change guys" seems to think he and his team will be the solution to winning the hearts and minds of the population, and thus the war itself. We were very happy to have Kyle join us to bring a level of expertise that would otherwise be missing from an analysis of a film such as this.

Happy holidays everyone! And what better way to open the "commercialization" of the season than by talking about "The Founder" and how the McDonald's corporation became the global presence it is today.

Robert and I go solo on this one and get fairly deep into the concepts of persistence, specialization and the division of labor.

This was a perfect meatball of a movie for us and we hope you enjoy it.

Walter Block joins us for our Thanksgiving Special. Being the beginning of the holiday season, with good will toward man and all that, it felt appropriate to discuss charitable giving and the premises of the documentary, "Poverty Inc.".

One recommendation, before watching the movie, please read the article by Block and Fryzek, then watch, then re-read the paper. You will get much more out of the movie and gain some economic insights that are easily missed.

We open the holiday travel season with the 20th anniversary of a John Hughes mid-80's classic, "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" with our returning guest, the Professional Asshole.
We get into a very dated movie that could not be made today as most of the problems that arise have since been solved by technology.

Still, a kind of fun movie that may be worth a watch every few years.

Esoteric Entity joins us to discuss the Robert Reich's "Inequality For All" - a leftist-propaganda puff-piece that caters to the uninformed and lowest common denominator for economic analysis.

Described on Amazon, where it has over a thousand GLOWING reviews as:

"A passionate argument on behalf of the middle class, Inequality for All features Robert Reich–professor, best-selling author, and Clinton cabinet member–as he demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. The film is an intimate portrait of a man whose lifelong goal remains protecting those who are unable to protect themselves. Through his singular perspective, Reich explains how the massive consolidation of wealth by a precious few threatens the viability of the American workforce and the foundation of democracy itself. In this Inconvenient Truth for the economy, Reich uses humor and a wide array of facts to explain how the issue of economic inequality affects each and every one of us."

I'm sure you'll find that we disagree with this assessment and the Amazon reviews.

Heeeeeeeere's Johnny! We bring back two former guests to tag-team on the Kubrick classic, the Shining. Doc Brown from our Episode 41 on It, and Patrick MacFarlane of the Liberty Weekly Podcast and our Episode 35 on Rogue One join us in the Gold Room to share a few drinks with Lloyd - on the house of course.

This was to be our Halloween special, but schedules kept getting pushed due to illness, contracts and obligations to employers.

The fact that there is so much ambiguity built into the movie, that it can be debated for decades after is a testament to how well made this film is. This should be a film that satisfies Robert’s desire in a story to have tension and struggle within the narrative. We have genuine unease and sense of dread for the character - despite the fact they we “know” going into it that Jack does go crazy and attempts to murder his family with an axe.

We have a bit of a treat for you this close to Halloween. We discuss George A. Romero's uncopyrighted zombie-vector the Night of the Living Dead (1968) and the remake from 1990 with Mike C. a listener and electronic music artist from Canada.

You can find his music at: https://soundcloud.com/user850128897/sets/stir-the-pot

Great conversation ensues and we hope that you enjoy this frightful take on the beauty that springs forth when market forces are allowed to flourish.
