On this episode of The Tatiana Show, we welcome fellow promoter and defender of liberty, Jeff Deist. Jeff is the president of the Mises Institute, an organization created to educate in the Austrian school of economics, individual freedom, honest history, and international peace.
Jeff tells his story of his brother influencing him to the ideas of liberty, meeting Ron Paul in 1988, and eventually working for Dr. Paul on his congressional and presidential campaigns after a tenure as a private practice attorney.
We also get some history of the Mises Institute and its founding in the 1980’s by Lew Rockwell, Murray Rothbard, and Margit Von Mises to promote her husband’s dream of a graduate institute for Austrian economics.
We also get Jeff’s take on the current political climate and his opinions on:
- Donald Trump and what led him to the presidency and if there’s any influence from Ron Paul or Austrian economics.
- If the Libertarian party has a place in the 2020 election.
- Why Libertarianism is a tough sell and does the liberty movement need a leader.
Be sure to listen for Jeff’s thoughts on the current candidates such as Bernie Sanders and Jacob Hornberger, what he sees as the most important war to get out of, and his hope for the future of cryptocurrency and Bitcoin.
