Scott is joined by Jeff Deist, the President of the Mises Institute, to discuss the bizarre economic moment we are living through. Deist puts into perspective the historic levels of economic stimulus that the Federal Reserve injected into the economy in 2020. The intervention was unprecedented in both scale and speed, and we’re already feeling the effects. Scott and Deist talk about the state of housing markets and where in the past we should look to better understand where the economy is headed.
