Mark Skousen, author and editor of The Journal of Economic Perspectives, is known as a “maverick” of economics for his contrarian and optimistic views, his sometimes-outrageous statements and predictions.
His more unusual predictions include:
Forecasting in the early 1980s that “Reaganomics will work!”
Sending a special alert to subscribers of Forecasts & Strategies to “Sell all stocks and mutual funds” on Sept. 8, 1987, just six weeks before the 1987 Stock Market Crash
Calling for the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the collapse of Soviet Communism
Predicting of the biggest bull market on Wall Street in the 20th century — the 1990s
So he was ideally suited to start Freedom Fest which has turned into the largest gathering of freedom seeking libertarians around. We touched on his favorite topic of how much government is just enough and he clued us into the upcoming festivities for FreedomFest 2012 coming up this July in Las Vegas. And we also discussed the best ways to restart real political dialog, which is an exchange of ideals and beliefs, minus the personal attacks and unneccesary we’ve recently witnessed.
