Professor Richard Epstein, pioneering Libertarian legal scholar, joins Jason Hartman to explain how income inequality is good for society, but is very dependent on the methods used to produce the best outcome. The current methods our government are attempting to use are causing job losses, it blocks gains in trade, the need for further public assistance increases, which in turn increases taxes, “yet another implicit drain on voluntary transactions,” Richard illustrates. He provides examples to demonstrate the consequences of equality by egalitarian efforts of our government versus voluntary redistribution. Listen for more details at: www.JasonHartman.com. Richard A. Epstein is the inaugural Laurence A. Tisch Professor of Law at NYU School of Law. He has authored several books, including Design for Liberty: Private Property, Public Administration and the Rule of Law, The Case Against the Employee Free Choice Act, Supreme Neglect: How to Revive the Constitutional Protection of Property Rights, and many more.

Jason Hartman interviews Dean Clancy, the Vice President of Public Policy of a grassroots movement called FreedomWorks, to discuss many hot topics and issues that our country is facing. Dean talks about the fiscal cliff and the ramifications of the policies pushed through on New Year’s Eve, and the money being thrown at special interests in typical bloated government fashion. Dean stresses the importance of voter participation and discusses some radical options to turn around the debt crisis and decentralize the system. He states there is more incentive in government to do the wrong thing than what is actually best for our country and its citizens.
