4th Edition: Tariffs & Trade Wars


The armchair economists are back for another edition of What The Heckonomics and this week Brian is learning Jake a lil' something about Tariffs and Trade Wars! Talking all about Trumps plans and his sentiment that "they are good and easy to win." Also Jakelandia & Brianlund go to war over shoes and chairs and the Star Wars prequels find relevance! There's also some Star Trek & Wakanda comparisons because NERDS, and the two find themselves discussing how there's a lot more humanity involved in economics than it may seem and if its possible to find the balance between the obligation to care of our fellow countrymen while accepting economic creative destruction.

All that and Brian makes it a WHOLE HOUR before saying something mean about libertarians.
