I was a guest on Sarah Westall’s Business Game Changers show.

From the show description:

Business Game Changers – Is it Time for a new Philosophy regarding Currencies and Economics?

With the problems the world is facing over destructive “currency wars” and the continual debt that governments are racking up, is it time for a new way of doing things? My guest, Jason Erb, thinks it is. He explains his philosophy regarding debt, currencies, and how governments, bankers, and economists have led us to a ridiculous state of using our precious tax resources to pay foreign bank owners interest instead of repairing our infrastructure or giving tax money back to the people so they can buy food, medicine, or other necessities.”

On the January 24, 2015 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism, I discussed:

Hey, hey, hey, it’s not Fat Albert, it’s Bill Cosby who came to town, Target Canada didn’t hit the mark and is going out of business, a woman who found porn on her cell phone, local government shenanigans and I am not Charlie.

From Tom Woods’ October 7, 2014 podcast, Austrian economist takes on bestselling college text, chapter by chapter, I noted that there was no challenge mentioned of mainstream economics textbooks advocating governments borrowing from private banks to pay for their legitimate government services rather instead of issuing the money directly, interest-free.

I have extended interview invitations to the Ontario Libertarian Party candidates in Kitchener-Waterloo, and here is my 20-minute interview with Patrick Bernier, OLP candidate in Kitchener Centre. You can listen to the audio here.

We talk about the OLP’s plans for empowering individuals and not government, with regard to health care and education, which are always big issues, provincially, and locally as well.

We talk about the unaffordable $11,189 2012-2013 Ontario per student grant for the public education system, and student-driven alternative options that would be more effective.

For health care, we discussed patient-focused care, and ways to improve efficiencies and drive costs down to the level of other countries with better care.

Recently, I conducted an in-depth interview with Ontario Libertarian Party leader Allen Small on March 20, 2014.

Allen SmallOn the March 20, 2014 special broadcast of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, I interviewed Ontario Libertarian Party leader, Allen Small. Here is the audio.

We discussed the following issues:

  • The upcoming Ontario general election
  • The Ontario Libertarian Party’s plan to run a full slate of candidates in all 107 ridings in the upcoming election
  • Major parties changing their policies just to get votes, whereas Libertarian Party stands on principles
  • Reactions to increasing government intrusion in the private, peaceful activities of our lives
  • Municipal governance
  • Unnecessary permits
  • The proper role of government
  • Canada in infamous company with Cuba and North Korea, for not allowing private payment of primary health care by most residents
  • Ontario’s exemption for private sports clubs
  • Ontario used to have a vibrant private health care system in the early 1960s
  • Provincial health insurance coverage arbitrary and varies among provinces
  • You have a right to health, but not to force others to provide health care for you
  • Current health policy in Ontario costing time, money and lives
  • Toronto Mayor Rob Ford publicly admitting to what constitutes an indictable offence (crack possession and use)
  • Waterloo mayoral candidate Dave MacDonald’s letter to Premier Kathleen Wynne, calling for a provincially-mandated referendum on the Region’s light rail transit plans
  • Whether referendums are appropriate for issues that aren’t the proper function of government
  • The misconception of voting for an alternative party is “throwing your vote away”
  • Even a small percentage of support for alternative parties in a close election can cause other parties to “steal” ideas, and how that’s beneficial

I previously interviewed Allen on September 16, 2012.

From this February 23, 2010 Daily Bell interview with Lew Rockwell, he said:

Daily Bell: Is it reasonable to believe that the state will ever wither away or does reality instruct us that the best that can be done is to limit its power?

Rockwell: To me, that’s like asking if we can imagine a society without robberies and murders. Maybe it won’t ever happen, but we must have the ideal in mind or else we’ll never get closer to it. Without the ideal, progress stops. To some extent, then, whether reality will finally ever conform is not the critical question. What counts is that what we imagine can and should exist. I like to imagine a society without legally sanctioned aggression against person and property.

Andrew NapolitanoFrom his February 18, 2014 appearance on the Tom Woods Show, Judge Andrew Napolitano said (at 16:04):

Even when Lew Rockwell and you, and I, are dining together, I am the most libertarian person in the room.


The long answer is that I am the quintessential Rothbardian. I believe that you have the right to avoid the state, to avoid the government, the absolute moral right to do so.

For more on Judge Napolitano, see my article, Dr. Stan Monteith on Judge Andrew Napolitano: “Is he another plant in the conservative movement?”, in response to Judge Napolitano’s statement that the first American to shoot down a drone flying over their house where their kids are playing would be an “American hero.”
