Ferg on WBT in Charlotte: The role of taxation now and in the future

On Sunday, Bobby DeMuro of WBT Radio (pictured) invited me on his show, and I was pleased to speak with him from Quito, Ecuador. We addressed the following questions:

  • How is taxation destructive to the economy?
  • How can libertarians not support government welfare?
  • What changes does the future hold for tax burdens?

Do have a listen (10 minutes, MP3), and don’t hesitate to email me your feedback.
