ANYTHING PEACEFUL

A Sit-Down with Nick Gillespie of Reason TV

FEBRUARY 25, 2013 by THE FREEMAN



Freeman editor Max Borders got to sit down with Reason's Nick Gillespie in this interview for Reason TV.

Nick and Max talk crony capitalism, wealth inequality, and the future of The Freeman.

"We have a huge problem in this country with the difference between makers and takers," says Borders, "between crony capitalists and actual value creators. . . . You've got people who have figured out how to game the system. They go down to the brothels of K Street and figure out how to change the rules to benefit them[selves], and we get massive transfers of wealth from middle class and poor people to rich people."
