This week, I sit down with fellow podcaster and YouTuber The Uneducated Economist.

Four years ago, whilst selling lumber during the day, he spent hours researching economics in his free time. He tried to share his insights with his colleagues until one day; a colleague confessed that it was all going over their heads and that perhaps he should start a blog. The blog became a YouTube channel that now has ninety thousand subscribers.

Although he left formal education at high school, he takes complex economic issues and breaks them down so anyone can understand and have a conversation about them.

We talk:

  • Economics 101
  • Debt as an addiction
  • Prospects for the dollar
  • What’s happening with inflation
  • Quitting alcohol and climbing out of debt
