Updated: Oct 14, 2018



Walter Block is Harold E. Wirth Endowed Chair and Professor of Economics, College of Business, Loyola University in New Orleans and Senior fellow at the Mises Institute.


His recent book, Space Capitalism, written with Peter Nelson, is the latest in his privatization series (recall his other book Water Capitalism, from the 3rd episode of the show, The Geopolitics of the South China Sea). The authors apply the homesteading principle to planets, moons, orbits & much more. Professor Block also revokes Elon Musk's libertarian card and teaches us about economics and timing.
