    #316: What If We Paid Off The Debt? MP3

    We got our hands on a secret government report outlining what once looked like a potential crisis: The possibility that the U.S. government might pay off its entire debt.It sounds ridiculous today. But not so long ago, the prospect of a debt-free U.S. was seen as a real possibility with the potential to upset the global financial system.Today on the show, we hear from the economist who wrote the report. And we look a...

    #321: How To Kill A Currency MP3

    As the world considers the possible death of the euro, it's worth considering a famous historical example. Ok, it's not that famous.

    #335: Who Killed Lard? MP3

    You rarely see lard on menus. There aren't shelves and shelves of it in every supermarket. In this country, we've sort of lost touch with the once beloved pig fat.On today's podcast, we ask — who killed lard? Was it Upton Sinclair?
