My Appearance on LN Radio Talking Joe Biden, Stock Market, COVID-19

It has been a while since I last appeared on LN Radio. With so much going on outside of the economics realm in the last few months, my area of expertise is not as critical as some of my colleagues’ who are incredible political reporters and analysts.

I’m looking at you Joe Schaeffer and Sarah Cowgill!

Anyway, I made my return to LN Radio to discuss the Joe Biden economy, stock markets, and COVID-19. My appearance begins at 20:00

My Favorite Modern Films

If you frequent this blog, you will often find lists of some of my favorite classic motion pictures from way back when.

On occasion, I receive emails from some of you fine people about what modern movies I enjoyed or I think are classics.

It is difficult to define modern, but I’m going to go with films that have come out since I was born in 1988 (in no particular order):

Schindler’s List

Pulp Fiction

There Will Be Blood

21 Grams



Confessions of a Dangerous Mind


Downfall (German)

The Lives of Others (German)

Note: I think Christopher Nolan is the best filmmaker today, and I’ve enjoyed every picture (except that Al Pacino / Robin Williams film) of his.

Talking Inflation on The Uprising Podcast

I recently appeared on The Uprising with Liberty Nation’s incomparable Legal Affairs Editor Scott Cosenza. We talked inflation and economics in general.

Cosenza is a great guy and a superb host. So be sure to listen to his podcast and check out his regular LN TV episodes with another gentleman, Mark Angelides.

Here is the videocast version of the podast (my segment starts at 59:33):

The Last Woman Standing – My 5 Favorite Olivia de Havilland Films

I just learned that actress Olivia de Havilland passed away. She was one of the last few actors/actresses from that era. There isn’t really anybody left, except perhaps Kim Novak. But from the studio system, de Havilland was the last one.

So, what were some of my favorite films of hers? There were just too many to list. I will do my best to pick my five favorites from her huge collection of films:

1. The Heiress | 1949

2. The Snake Pit | 1948

3. Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte | 1964

4. Lady in a Cage | 1964

5. Captain Blood | 1935

There were plenty of other good ones, such as “To Each His Own” and “Strawberry Blonde,” but I think these stand out the most to me.

With “Captain Blood,” I don’t really care about pirate pictures, but this Errol Flynn picture was entertaining.
