He is back for his second interview and this time they are discussing his new book The Scandal of Money: Why Wall Street Recovers but the Economy Never Does. George has also authored Wealth and Poverty. He is the Co-founder of the Discovery Institute, one of the original pillars of supply-side economics and a former speechwriter for Ronald Reagan while Reagan was running for President. He says “You can print money but you can’t print value.”
