Free Minds and Free Markets: It’s Your Dime Interview with Reason’s Nick Gillespie
From the moment we enter the education system, we’re taught that government provides a benevolent hand that guides the economy and protects its citizens. For more than 50 years, Reason Magazine has been exposing the cracks in this narrative, contrasting the heavy hand of government with the beauty of free minds and free markets.
In this episode of It’s Your Dime, Mike Maharrey talks with Reason editor-at-large Nick Gillespie.
- What the evolution of music can tell us about the advance of freedom
- Nick’s path to a libertarian worldview
- The History of Reason and Nick’s work there
- Why we need free markets
- Absurd government regulations
- How the government’s control of money stifles freedom
- Trump’s wall
