Thoughts from Maharrey Head #74: Economic Ignorance Minimum Wage Edition

“10 Minutes Closer to Freedom”


In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I talk about people holding a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining completely ignorant of the subject in the context of the minimum wage.

Murray Rothbard once said, “It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.’ But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance.”

The minimum wage debate in New Jersey brings out just the loudmouthed, economically ignorant and illiterate people Rothbard was referring to. In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I talk about it.
