Mark Thornton, Austrian economics, Mises InstituteWhile many understand that this country is headed over a financial cliff, they don’t understand the fundamental reasons why this is so and what must be done to turn it around. The answers are not so obvious – but the questions stare us right in the face: Why do we have recessions and depressions? Why does our money always seem to buy less and less? Why is unemployment so rampant?

Our guest, Dr. Mark Thornton, is an author, a senior fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, and an expert on Austrian economics. He’s here to share with us how the fundamental principles of liberty and financial prosperity go hand in hand.
