Popular Economics: What the Rolling Stones, Downton Abbey, and LeBron James Can Teach You about Economics

Speaking Topics
  • Government Barriers to Economic Growth: How Policy Error Gave Us the Great Depression, the Financial Crisis and the Great Recession

    The history books are filled with mistaken assumptions about not just the causes of the Great Depression, but also what got us out. Much the same describes the early explanations of 2008 and the difficult recession that followed. This talk will simplify what has been made opaque, while showing that all three major economic events were wholly unnatural effects of bad bipartisan policy error from Washington, D.C.

  • Why Washington and Wall Street Are Better Off Living Apart

    The tight relationship between Washington and Wall Street is mutually destructive for both. “It’s the economy, stupid” says politics, and yet, the close link between finance and government restrains economic growth by virtue of it politicizing investment. Worse, the ties between finance and government make the bailouts of troubled financial institutions much more likely. The latter greatly weaken the financial sector, all the while inflaming an electorate that views bailouts as evidence of favoritism. This talk will show why the popularity and health of Wall Street and Washington will soar if the two create major distance between themselves.

  • Do We Really Need the Federal Reserve? Addressing the Pros and Cons of the World’s Foremost Central Bank

    Global economic troubles since 2008 have put central banks, and in particular the Federal Reserve, on watch. More and more people are asking if we need a Fed at all, and others, if the Fed acts contrary to collective interests. To the average person, low unemployment and a booming economy are the ideal we should constantly aspire to. Not so to members of the Federal Reserve and other global central banks. They are very explicit in their view that low unemployment and soaring economic growth cause labor and manufacturing shortages that lead to inflation. This talk will address the perceived pros and cons of a central bank—and specifically address central bank models of inflation—in a global context to conclude whether the Fed is essential, dangerous or superfluous.

  • What’s Going on in the Economy and Why Economic Growth Is So Easy to Achieve

    Modern economists act as though economic growth is mysterious and hard to achieve. In fact, nothing could be easier than economic growth. It’s as simple as getting four basic inputs—taxes, regulation, trade and monetary policy—correct. This talk will describe the basics to growth, and then apply them to the present economy to show what is holding it back when it’s slow, and what’s causing it to boom when the economy is soaring.

  • The Genius of Wealth Inequality

    Though wealth inequality is viewed in a pejorative light by many economists, and most members of the political and pundit class, it's reality is a great deal better than most realize. As the talk reveals, rising inequality signals a falling gap in the standard of living experienced by the rich and poor, greater opportunity for the individuals who comprise any economy to pursue the path in life that most animates their talent, and a rising base of capital that will be redistributed from the rich to the companies of today and the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
