    I felt there should be a thread about it in this forum. I like to listen to replays on my phone with an app on friday nights after work.

    He has a podcast too, but the commercials are not edited out.

    He has Ron Paul on often. That is always enlightening.

    In other words, Alex Jones postures as an anti-establishment figure (like Ron Paul) but his economic philosophy is perfectly in-line with the IMF, World Bank "Washington Consensus". Check it out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_Consensus

    Some of the above recommendations aren't immediately obvious how they relate to Ron Paul and Alex Jones. For example, #8. The way they gin up foreign direct investment is through low corporate and individual taxes, tax holidays, special economic zones (relaxed labor regulations), preferential tariffs etc.

    It's all there: deregulation, privatization, imposing free-trade, the elimination of subsidies for the poor, rolling back progressive taxation where it exists etc. It's the Wall Street wish-list, it's what false-populists like Paul and Jones agitate for, and it's failed (by design) everywhere it's been implemented.

    I hate to admit it but I actually didn't know who Ron Paul was until the last time he ran for president.

    And only because of my facebook friends. After researching him and listening to his speeches I was completely beside myself.

    You can check out his economic plan here: http://www.ronpaul.com/media/RestoreAmericaPlan.pdf

    I noticed his campaign rhetoric was heavily anti-war, but according to his own plan he only means to cut the DoD budget by 15%. Compare that to Medicaid 50%, food stamps 50%, child nutrition over 50%, children's health insurance program 50% and so on.

    That's not inconsistent with his economic philosophy, inspired by Ludwig Mises. However, that is a problem for Alex Jones, a determined enemy of the Rockefeller family (or so we thought).

    In other words, your heroic, anti-establishment candidate got his economic philosophy from the court economist of the most powerful family in America.

    Alex Jones is a little too extreme for my taste. I do question the official 9/11 story and building 7 collapsing always seemed odd to me.

    I do listen to him when Luke Rudkowski is on.
