Mike Konczal (Rortybomb, Roosevelt Institute) and Corey Robin (The Reactionary Mind, coreyrobin.com)

On Fireside Chats, Mike talks to Corey about his recent article in The Nation. Corey explains the important role of Friedrich Nietzsche’s ideas in free-market conservatism, and how shifting economic theories of value nudged politics rightward. Corey sees Hayek’s defense of an elite ruling class as an application of Nietzsche’s idea of the Übermensch. Mike asks for a bibliography of Hayek for those on the left, and Corey describes the difference between neoliberalism and classical liberalism. Finally, Corey explains how the Austrian economists are more influential and radical than the right-wing thinkers currently being studied in political science departments.
