7/3/12 Charles Goyette

Charles Goyette discusses how prosperity is an offshoot of freedom, how the state is hastening America’s economic collapse, why Democrats and Republicans are both “food stamp” parties; and why we need to be aware of the demagogues diverting public anger away from government and Wall Street, toward convenient scapegoats like gays and Muslims.

 

Antiwar Radio: Charles Goyette

Charles Goyette, former Antiwar Radio host and author of the upcoming new book Red and Blue and Broke All Over: Restoring America’s Free Economy, discusses why America’s economic and political problems can’t be solved until the red-blue paradigm is rejected; irreconcilable economic headlines where consumer spending is up while income drops – and nobody asks why; why the demand (Keynes) and supply-siders (Friedman) are two sides of the same government monetary intervention coin; a summary of the global debt crisis and European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF); the other PIIGS countries teetering on insolvency while Greek rescue plans founder; how “military Keynesianism” has bankrupted the US; the intertwined fates of US empire and the dollar; and why Americans prefer a stern father-figure for president, even one as clueless as Herman Cain.

Charles Goyette, author and former Antiwar Radio co-contributor, discusses his upcoming new book Red and Blue and Broke All Over: Restoring America’s Free Economy; the “cocaine theory” of economic stimulus; why the bond market bubble – the biggest one yet – has to pop someday; how the US dollar’s weakness is masked by the simultaneous devaluation of all the world’s fiat currencies; why the first major country to institute a gold-backed currency will dominate global finance; why it’s no coincidence the most innovative, cost-competitive industries have the least government intervention; and why economic central planning in a country of 300+ million people is doomed to failure.

Charles Goyette, former Antiwar Radio co-contributor and author of The Dollar Meltdown : Surviving the Impending Currency Crisis with Gold, Oil, and Other Unconventional Investments, discusses his LRC article “Obama Gets it Half Right,” the diminishing returns of government “stimulus” deficit spending, Bernanke’s additional job duty: juice up the stock market, why we need higher interest rates (but the decision and power to do so should not be centrally planned), the Fed as last buyer of Treasury debt, and now the largest holder, and the foreign policy implications of bad economic policy: increased militarism by desperate politicians trying to distract the public from the actual problems.

Antiwar Radio: Charles Goyette

Charles Goyette, former Antiwar Radio co-contributor and author of The Dollar Meltdown : Surviving the Impending Currency Crisis with Gold, Oil, and Other Unconventional Investments, discusses the grossly inadequate spending cut plans from Democrats and Republicans alike; how the narrow partisan debate on economic issues ignores the fact that both guns and butter are off the table; how the dollar is dying, squeezed from without and within; Congressional Republicans who won’t cut the Pentagon budget for fear of losing defense contracts in their districts; and why the University of Texas endowment fund’s decision to take physical delivery of its gold is a seminal event.

Antiwar Radio: Charles Goyette

Charles Goyette, former Antiwar Radio co-contributor and author of The Dollar Meltdown : Surviving the Impending Currency Crisis with Gold, Oil, and Other Unconventional Investments, discusses his article, “Too Late! The Government Already Did Do Something” at lewrockwell.com; how government-imposed wage and price controls lead to shortages and eventually black markets; the producer pricing pressures that are overlooked when limits are set on the price of finished consumer goods; and Ludwig von Mises’s reminder to keep the monetary system out of government hands.

Antiwar Radio: Charles Goyette

Charles Goyette, former Antiwar Radio co-contributor and author of The Dollar Meltdown : Surviving the Impending Currency Crisis with Gold, Oil, and Other Unconventional Investments, discusses Ben Bernanke’s 60 Minutes interview where he declares (with lip-quivering certitude) a “100 percent confidence” the Fed can control inflation; how the Fed filled up on bad assets full of “mystery meat” in their quantitative easing program(s); Republican deficit reduction plans that will be decimated from even a minuscule increase in interest rates; the crisis in fiat money as most of the world’s currencies are debased relative to hard assets; and why Americans are still asleep at the switch while their government actively destroys the economy.

Antiwar Radio: Thomas E. Woods and Charles Goyette

Thomas E. Woods and Charles Goyette, authors of Meltdown and The Dollar Meltdown (respectively), discuss Washington Post writer David Broder’s assertion that a war with Iran would save Obama’s legacy and the economy, why it’s still important to fight against the myth that WWII caused the end of the Great Depression, how surging commodity prices and a falling dollar signal serious consumer price inflation by next year, the post-9/11 economic sugar high engineered by Alan “Maestro” Greenspan’s interest rate cuts, the insignificant spending cuts in the GOP’s “Pledge to America” and why Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential campaign will be a barn-burner.
