On this week’s Radio Rothbard, Ryan McMaken and Tho Bishop celebrate World Economic Forum week by discussing the Managerial Revolution. While James Burnham’s disinterest in economics made his criticism of capitalism cringey, modern financialization has manipulated the profit and loss mechanisms that any fan of his work can appreciate. Also, what is the lasting impact of the political capture of corporate power? Will the next crisis allow for a needed re-evaluation of insidious neoliberalism, or will “hypercapitalism” get the blame? Tune in for this and more on the latest episode.
