Better Living Through Libertarianism
Everybody's hollering these days about socialism and libertarianism. We're wading into the fray to understand what those terms really mean.
Last week, we talked to a socialist about modern socialism.
On today's podcast, we talk to two libertarians from the Cato Institute — economist Mark Calabria, and David Boaz, author of Libertarianism: A Primer.
We asked Boaz what life would be like under a libertarian government. His answer:
David Boaz: You would be much richer, you would be happier, you would be better looking, you would be taller.
Adam Davidson: Would I be stronger?
AD: Could I eat fattening foods but somehow maintain a slim physique?
DB: Yes, probably. ... With faster economic growth, we'd have better technology. And we probably would have all these miracle fats that don't put any weight on you.
