The Corner

The one and only.

Today’s Between the Covers podcast is with Burton W. Folsom Jr., co-author of Uncle Sam Can’t Count: A History of Failed Government Investments, from Beaver Pelts to Green Energy. We discuss whether George Washington was a crony capitalist, whether government investments always fail, and why politicians have such a hard time learning the lessons of failure.
