Economics and Motivational Fun

The American Conservative University Podcast has over a 1,000 conservative (American meaning not UK party) audio shows. As they say – just listen at the feet of some of the world’s greatest Conservative thinkers.

Two great recent Podcasts we would like to draw your attention to.

Anyone with a passing interest in Economics should read or listen to Milton Friedman.  This MasterEdit podcast covers many interviews with Friedman and covers a wide range of economic issues.

Wealth creation is not a zero-sum game

Hoong-Wai Cheah writes explaining how all of us benefit from people getting rich by creating wealth – “When society is bettered materially, the wealth creators responsible get rich. If the entrepreneur fails to better society, they will not get rich” https://hoongwai1984.wordpress.com/2017/03/27/wealth-creation-is-not-a-zero-sum-game/
