This Is Why Socialism Fails Every Single Time (Pt. 3) | Stephen Moore | POLITICS | Rubin Report


Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Stephen Moore, a visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation and co-author of “Trumponomics: Inside the America First Plan to Revive Our Economy,” He talks about the current push for democratic socialism and the rise of politicians like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and those that affiliate themselves with the Democratic Socialists of America. Stephen thinks that this latest crop of politicians that argue for more federal government control of the economy should be called authoritarian instead. He also makes the case that the most significant forgotten lesson of the 20th Century was that socialism doesn’t work. He finishes by discussing what he feels is a new cold war with China and why he feels the US will continue to be the main economic superpower for some time to come.
