Henderson on Tom Woods Podcast

Summary:
Tom Woods contacted me last Thursday morning to ask if he could interview me that afternoon on this 8-minute monologue from Tucker Carlson in which Tucker endorses Elizabeth Warren’s economic plan and claims that libertarians are running Washington. On this latter, who knew? So with minimal prep, I did so. That episode has now come out. It is Episode 1423. It goes a little under half an hour and I was pretty pleased with it. I did make one major factual error. I said that the unemployment rate during the 1958 recession hit about 10 percent. Not even close. At its peak it was 7.4 percent.
