This is another podcast from one of the many podcasts that I like to listen to. This one is from the Jason Stapleton Program, definately worth a listen!

673: The AMA's, Taxes and Bitcoin


So I'm in California working on a deal that will allow the JSP to expand to the next level and become the kind of show we all want it to be and while visiting with my ad partners at Westwood One, I as offered a ticket to the American Music Awards.

Now, pop culture is not something I follow closely and pop music, not at all, but I thought, "How many times do you get the chance to attend a big event like the AMA's for free?"

So I went.

I had a really great time, and I was proud of the producers for keeping politics out of the event. I think everyone is getting a little tired of the overlap. I talk about politics all day, and I know when I put on the ball game or go to a concert the last thing I want to hear some celebrities opinion on current events.

It looks like the AMA's are tired of it too because the event was really focused on the music and celebrating some really talented artists.

But enough of that, let's talk about some politics.

I read an article from Forbes this morning talking about the GOP tax cuts, and I thought I'd use it as a teaching tool to point out the way Keynesians think about taxes and interest rates. I also think it's a great example of how little people actually understand about economics.

After that, I'll talk a little about bitcoin, and then we'll finish up with the mess in Baltimore. It turns out they've cordoned off sections of the city and are violating 4th amendment protections all in the name of protecting its citizens.

It's another example of government violating your constitutional protections and telling you its good for you. LOL
