Carlos and Bob continue their series, summarizing some of the material in Chapter 5 of their new book (co-authored with Nelson Nash). However, because Chapter 5 contains so much material, they are breaking the treatment up into two separate episodes. In this Part I, they address questions such as, “Can only certain people practice IBC?” and, “Shouldn’t I buy term and invest the difference?”

Mentioned in this episode:

  • The Case For IBC
  • IBC Seminar for the General Public in Chicago, May 19, 2018. Details here.
  • Mises Institute event in Nashville, April 14, 2018. Details here.
  • Three-part podcast series on “buy term and invest the difference,” starting with episode 4.

On February 27, 2018, Bob was the guest at the student-led Yale Political Union, debating the resolution, “The free market can solve climate change.” A member of the audience captured the audio on his phone; we are presenting here Bob’s opening statement, his Q&A, and his summary statement. (We are editing out the brief speeches given by the students in the middle of the event.) Below is a timeline of some highlights, and then links to further reading on Bob’s work on this topic.

7:52 — Bob explains that higher temperatures mean fewer elderly deaths in the winter. When his opponents hiss, Bob jokes that they don’t care about the elderly.

25:55 — Q&A session begins.

30:30 — Student critic asks if Bob believes in any role for government to provide public goods or utilities. (His answer gets a big cheer.)

31:30 — Bob contrasts government-regulated utility service in the summer with Budweiser.

33:19 — A student critic argues that the American public doesn’t care about climate change, and therefore free market won’t solve the problem. Bob turns this critique on its head.

37:50 — Bob gives summary remarks (after the other students have spoken, though their remarks are not included in this audio).
