Normally we discuss books on The Human Action Podcast, but this new academic paper by Professor Philipp Bagus is too important to ignore. "COVID-19 and the Political Economy of Mass Hysteria" is the one journal article you need to read this year. In only about ten pages it makes the devastating case that perverse political incentives—along with a nexus of state-connected media and scientists—combine to create and amplify "public health" hysteria.

The result is gross policy errors we will all pay for over many decades. Don't miss this show!
