Tyler Cowen joins us to discuss his new book; Big Business: A Love Letter to an American Anti-Hero. Throughout the conversation, Trevor and Aaron ask Tyler about crony capitalism, how Trump engages with big businesses, and the role of CEO’s. Cowen believes that big businesses are actually given a pretty unfair reputation as they create much more value than they are given credit for. Why is big business coming under heavier fire recently? How big is “big business”? Do CEO’s cheat more or less than others? Do you people like going to work and should they? How should big businesses interact with the federal government? How big is the finance world and is it too big? Why is a healthy financial sector important? If big business is good, why is it widely unliked?Further Reading: Big Business: A Love Letter to an American Anti-Hero, written by Tyler Cowen Conscious Capitalism Big Business Isn’t Big Politics, written by Tyler Cowen Marginal RevolutionRelated Content: Why We’re Too Complacent, Free Thoughts Podcast How Taxation Affects Income Inequality, Free Thoughts Podcast Is Capitalism Pro-Business?, Learn Liberty video with Steven Horwitz Hosted on Acast.
