American Airlines now has its own incident and I don’t see the news headlines for this one like we saw with United. An employee of American Airlines hits a woman with a stroller while me pulls it out of her hands and the stroller almost hits the woman’s baby as well. After this incident the employee comes back on the plane and asks a passenger if he wants to fight and go at it. Also, the former king of cable news, Bill O’Reilly is fired from Fox News! In political news, Trump said in a Wall Street Journal interview on April 12th that he thinks the dollar is too strong!  This is why the focus of my show is on economics because the world is full of economic illiterates!  https://www.theguardian.com/world/video/2017/apr/22/american-airlines-employee-clashes-with-passenger-video

United Airlines was the topic of media discussion all last week with the bloody Dr. David Dao. There’re some simple solutions that could have prevented this horrible incident from ever occurring! Obviously compensation greater than $800 should have occurred to entice passengers to voluntarily give up their seats. Also, last minute changes to flight crews should be avoided when everyone had already boarded the plane. People are less likely to give up their seat when they’re already sitting it in. The media really has blown this United story to hell and back and most people need to take a step back and look at everything in it’s entirety. Some people like Senator Chris Van Hollan think a government law is the answer! Are you kidding me!?

Danielle DiMartino Booth has a new book out on the fed from an insiders perspective. She says many things that Austrians can agree with and other things where she doesn’t go far enough!  She says we shouldn’t get rid of the fed but rather just need more competent people in charge. John Tamny offers critiques on her book but John misses the point in many respects. John Tamny thinks we mainly don’t need a fed because it’s largely irrelevant as it is. The way Mr. Tamny sees how the banking system works would still depend on a federal reserve so I can’t agree with his analysis either.  There’re many opinions on the fed and it seems Ron Paul and Murray Rothbard are the most correct on this issue.

Elon Musk successfully launched and landed the recycled rocket, Falcon 9. This is such a perfect example of how the private sector does things better and far cheaper than anything the government can do. The private sector can launch a rocket at a price tag of $200,000 compared to NASA’s cost of $450 million!  Isn’t that insane!? The more money that goes to government than that’s more money that is just being pissed away to the inefficient and wasteful government! Government invests for a political return, not an economic one!
