This episode provides updates on the Coke vs. Pepsi war, price gouging on cancer drugs and the Pope’s strong anti-capitalist speeches. We also respond to questions regarding a guaranteed basic income and why public employees are not an economic negative. Finally, we give an in-depth critical analysis on supporting countries that refuse to pay certain government debts.
