In place of a voiceless Jason Hartman, Adam takes the reins today to discuss some articles that have come across his eyes discussing home prices in various areas of society and why they shouldn't be as big a surprise as the media seems to think they are. He also touches on the possibility of the government offering a 100 year bond.
Then Jason talks with Patri Friedman, Executive Director of The Seasteading Institute, about creating new countries using the seasteading technique. Patri discusses how the concept would work in today's environment and why it's not absurd to think of a country being created on the water. It's coming sooner than you expect.
