Guest Episode: Power Hour w/ Alex Epstein

Saifedean's interview on Power Hour, hosted by Alex Epstein, author of The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, about how systematic government control--"fiat"--wreaks havoc in the realms, not just of currency, but of science, education, and energy.

They cover:

  • How government control in the realm of ideas is treated as benign but is in fact incredibly dangerous.
  • The myth that leading universities such as Harvard, Yale, and Stanford are "private."
  • What freedom of scientific inquiry looks like, and how it gave birth to the modern world.
  • Why much of today's "modeling" would not exist in a free market.
  • How the moral case for fossil fuels is taking hold in the Bitcoin community.
