But the problems go deeper—like the plagiarism that university faculty would never tolerate in their students. On other fronts, what’s up with all these bans on lab-grown meat? And does the Biden administration understand how money works? Graham Walker, Phillip Magness, and Williamson Evers discuss all this and more on this episode of Independent Outlook.

Economist and author Phil Magness debunks a recent New York Times piece and shoddy academic work about the rich and their taxes. Phil Magness—an economic historian, author, and the David J. Theroux Chair in Political Economy at the Independent Institute—says the work of Piketty and his circle of inequality-obsessed colleagues is deeply flawed and sometimes outright deceptive.
