Jeff Tucker: How to Reject the Statist Quo

Jeff Tucker, of Mises.org, discusses the power of ideas, the universality of ideas, and the indestructibility of ideas, at the recent Mises Supporters Summit.  Although this YouTube may be slightly outside the usual strict economics paradigm of the Cobden Centre, this video is interesting because of his linking of Ludwig von Mises’ own ideas on fractional reserve banking slumbering for 100 years before popping up in the Carswell bill a few weeks ago.

Ideas live longer than walls and other material artifacts.

Ludwig von Mises, Theory and History, ch. 9, p. 196

The entire video is worth watching, however Tucker specifically discusses the indestructibility of ideas from 16:00 minutes onwards, and then talks about the Carswell bill from 17:00 minutes onwards.
