This interview with Robert Higgs–the leading scholar in the area of crisis and government expansion–conducted about 2 hours ago lasts about 25 minutes. He offers a range of interesting perspectives on how government took a relatively small-scale problem and worked to turn it into a calamity. He draws parallels between today and the early 1930s. His outlook on the future is probably not what you want to hear.
