Mark Thornton launches a new podcast called "Unanimity: Where Thoughts Matter". Exploring basic concepts of the world and humanity, he hopes to unlock the mystery of widespread disagreeableness in society.

Please subscribe to this monthly podcast at https://Mises.org/Unanimity.

Unanimity will not replace the weekly Minor Issues podcast (https://Mises.org/MinorIssues).

Historian David Beito has a new book from the Independent Institute titled, "The New Deal's War on the Bill of Rights." He joins Bob to discuss issues such as the Japanese concentration camps and the government's mass surveillance of telegrams.

In this week's episode, Mark takes another look at the Producer Price Index. As suggested in an episode from September 2023 (see https://Mises.org/MI_35), the PPI has indeed leveled off and is no longer "contributing" to the Federal Reserve's "Immaculate Disinflation." Mark points out that wholesale price increases are already in the long PPI "pipeline" and will likely make the Fed's announced plans fall apart.

The inflation news from the Federal Reserve is once again disappointing. All the measures were up and higher than predicted by the experts. Mark recaps this news and compares his guesses about the economy to the forecasts of the Federal Reserve and Wall Street economists. Mark also reiterates his predictions about rate cuts and the economy.

Simon Guenzl joins Bob to push back on Dave Smith's recent appearance, where Dave had made the case against open borders. Guenzl has published a libertarian critique of the Hoppean framework. The debate revolves around the status of government property. Bob plays devil's advocate, especially with a lightning round of "hard cases" for Guenzl at the end.

What happens when war shuts down the Strait of Hormuz? Mark looks at the economics and causes of a growing list of problems with the "chokepoints" of international trade: the Panama Canal, the Suez Canal, and Baltimore harbor. Will these chokepoints become Scapegoats for the Federal Reserve, and could war closing the Strait of Hormuz become a genuine world crisis?

In this week’s episode, Mark links the Global Climate change agenda to the old “Population Bomb” of the 1970s. He shows that climate alarmists are really de-populationists in environmentalist clothing—both of which run counter to science and promote personal, irrational agendas.

Senior Fellow Jörg Guido Hülsmann joins Ryan McMaken and Tho Bishop to talk about his new book on the economics of generosity, charity, and abundance. This is a much-neglected field of economics that mainstream economists lack tools to explain.

San Francisco officials decided in 2022 that the city needed more trash cans. While they could have simply purchased simple, ready-made bins, they decided instead to commission a local firm to create fifteen custom designs, costing between eleven and twenty-one thousand dollars each. They then placed QR codes on reach respectable so residents could vote for their favorite model, despite having no knowledge of the price.

One member of the city’s Board of Supervisors, Democrat Matt Haney, criticized the plan, despite voting to approve it. “I think most people would say just replace the cans with cans that we know work in other cities,” he said. “A trash can is one of the most basic functions of city governance, and if the city can’t do something as simple as this, how can they solve the bigger issues?”

Haney’s criticism raises important questions about why bureaucrats make different decisions on how to spend money than private individuals. Consider how you make spending decisions for your household. Most likely, you try to maximize quality while minimizing cost. But how would your priorities shift if you were purchasing something for a stranger? You would likely prioritize price well above quality.

Now imagine that you’re spending somebody else’s money. If you are purchasing items for yourself, you will probably prioritize quality over price. But if you were spending somebody else’s money for the benefit of strangers, you would likely pay far less attention to both price and quality than you would when spending your own money on yourself and your family. This is how bureaucrats make decisions about how to spend the money you pay in taxes.

Think about how much money your household pays in taxes each year. Let’s assume a family of four earning $70,000 a year, which is the national medium household income. Most obvious are the taxes withheld from your paychecks, which include income and payroll taxes. Depending on the state you live in, you will have your salary..

Many signs are now emerging that NATO and the West are slowly withdrawing support from Ukraine in its war with Russia. How much longer can the war continue?
