Debt, Money Printers, and the Christian Argument for Free Markets | David Bahnsen

David Bahnsen joins us for a wide-ranging conversation on the self-inflicted wounds to America's economy which could end our status as a world superpower. Why is government debt the driving force behind our declining growth? What does it mean when the Federal Reserve "prints money" - and is it really as bad as it sounds? How did our Judeo-Christian heritage lead to the greatest economic prosperity the world has ever known - and what do we lose when we separate the sacred from the secular? We cover all that and much more in less than 60 minutes.

David Bahnsen is the founder of The Bahnsen Group - a private wealth management firm with over $3 billion in assets, and a frequent commentator on Fox News and CNBC, regular contributor to National Review, and the author of best-selling books including "Crisis of Responsibility: Our Cultural Addiction to Blame and How You Can Cure It" and the soon to be released "There's No Free Lunch: 250 Economic Truths."

America Begins: The Origins and Meaning of Our Declaration of Independence | Dr. Danielle Allen

What did the Founding Fathers mean by the words, "We hold these truths to be self evident..."? In what ways did they weave the concept of equality into this founding document? How should we deal with the hypocrisy of Jefferson and others who pledged their lives to the words "all men are created equal" while at the same time enslaving people? What's the difference between our political constitution and our social constitution, and how are they aligned in America today? Dr. Danielle Allen joins us to answer these questions and explore the history, meaning, and philosophical foundations of our Declaration of Independence.

Dr. Danielle Allen is the author of "Our Declaration: A Reading of the Declaration of Independence in Defense of Equality." She is also the James Bryant Conant University Professor at Harvard University, Director of Harvard’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, and the principle investigator for the Democratic Knowledge Project. Follow her on Twitter at @dsallentess.
