Ryan gives his explanation of the wisdom behind Austrian economics.

Dr. Murphy gives his reasons why economists argue all the time. It's a matter of a lack of time travel.

Dr. Murphy goes on to explain how Krugman is basically a piece of crap (our words, not his), and hypocrite of high regard. This is why Dr. Murphy and Tom Woods host the show Contra Krugman and have released a book of the same title.
