Today’s guest is very special. Peter T Leeson is an economist and author of “The Invisible Hand”. We’re going to dig down into the economics of piracy in the Golden Age and why they had to work so differently from the merchant ships of the time.
What are Jolly Rogers really for (and when)? Did Thomas Jefferson and the founding fathers look to pirates when designing their new democracy. All this and more!
Peter was also the first name on my wishlist of guests when I started this show. I’ll explain why.
I’ll also tell you about my recent adventures in Colorado Springs over the weekend including some darn good BBQ and the Springs Donut Challenge.
