Mike talks with Bryan Caplan, Professor of Economics at George Mason University and a prolific and always interesting blogger for Econlog. He's the author of multiple books, three of which Bryan and Mike have discussed on previous episodes: The Myth of the Rational Voter (interview), The Case Against Education (interview), and Open Borders (interview). Today they discuss Bryan’s latest book Labor Econ vs The World: Essays on the World's Greatest Market.

Topics Mike & Bryan discuss include:

  • what labor economics is and why it stands against the world
  • if politicians are irrational and wrong or rational and deceptive
  • the problem with almost all government regulations
  • how the minimum wage hurts workers (and everyone else)
  • the largely illusory gender and race pay gaps
  • the questionable value of higher education (for most people)
  • why open borders would be a good thing for America (and the world)
