Subject: 2016 debate with Nick Gillespie
Walter, I just found this debate this night and “played the tape” on youtube. You did great. It’s amazing how some people (libertarians!) can blow off the importance of Top Guns and Russian fighters facing off! I did not know that Reason mag and Nick Gillespie had joined the NYT mud slinging. I think maybe is getting jealous of peeling off newcomers to freedom. I am in Miami, Florida, looking forward to your debate in Coral Gables with Augustus Invictus (is that a “real” name?). AT

Dear AT: Thanks for your kind words about this previous debate of mine with Nick Gillespie of Reason: (the debate starts at around the 24 minute mark; the comedic introduction starts near the 18 minute mark) in New York City. I think your assessment of Reason, vis a vis in particular, and by extension of the Mises Institute in general, is very accurate. I’ll bet you the budget of the former is a multiple of that of the latter. So, in terms of “bang for the buck,” the difference is even more stark. I assume Augustus Invictus is a nom de plume. Actually, I’m involved this coming weekend in not one but two different debates; I hope you’ll attend (or watch on live stream) both:
