Jason Hartman has a solo episode today as he explores some recent news stories and examines a few items of the day. Venturing all over the topics, Jason mulls over why it’s pretty common for the most popular economists to have the worst economic ideas (a la Karl Marx) and why the best economic ideas have the most disliked economists. Which leads to the question, what stupid ideas are we as a society embracing today? He also discusses the Supreme Court ruling that will somewhat level the field of retail as online retailers are now able to be taxed by the states, giving at least some form of a light at the end of the tunnel for retailers. Other topics of the day include the cost of terrorist protection, technology vs inflation, preventing identity theft, and the potential beginning of the demise of a massively overvalued (in Jason’s mind) company.
