Hillbilly Elegy: Self-Destructive Ideas and Behaviors Among the White Working Poor

from TomWoodsTV

J.D. Vance offers a compelling, firsthand account of life among the white working poor, and in particular among a family with roots in the Appalachia region of northern Kentucky. It’s easy to devise economic explanations for this group’s stagnation and retrogression, but a deeply ingrained set of self-destructive ideas and behaviors renders futile most conventional, political approaches to remedying the problem. This is an episode you won’t soon forget. Subscribe to the Tom Woods Show: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/t…
