Randian Villains with Millennial Characteristics: FTX, Fraud, and the Fed

On this episode of Radio Rothbard, Ryan McMaken and Tho Bishop look at conman Sam Bankman-Fried, the scam of FTX, and how regime legitimacy has fueled several fraudulent companies with unprofitable business practices.

Did post-2008 monetary policy fuel a bubble in “effective altruism?” Do examples like Elon Musk’s restructuring of Twitter offer an illustration of what Big Tech firms will have to do to survive in a time of less-than-easy money, or will the regime bailout out the corporate extensions of techno-managerialism? What killed Silicon Valley’s once-promising techno-libertarian style? Ryan and Tho look at this and more on this episode of Radio Rothbard.
