While the Federal Reserve is desperate to depict an optimistic vision for the global economy, their fellow central bankers aren't buying it. Earlier this week Mark Carney of the Bank of England shutdown talk of the BOE possibly following the Fed's lead in raising interest rates.

On Mises Weekends, Jeff is joined by Dr. Ed Stringham, a Mises associated scholar and the author of the book Private Governance. More and more Americans are waking up to the reality that the US criminal justice system is hopelessly broken, riddled with bad incentives and bad actors. In the wake of recent police shootings Jeff and Ed discuss how and why private security firms could create vastly better outcomes for crime victims, society, and even perpetrators. This is a fascinating discussion you won't want to miss.

The Mises Institute works to advance the Austrian School of economics and the Misesian tradition, and defends the market economy, private property, sound money, and peaceful international relations, while opposing state intervention.
