Porter and Buck welcome business leader and chairman of Forbes Media, Steve Forbes. They discuss why some Americans have lost the passion for free markets, what’s happening on college campuses, and the enormous gap between productivity and stagnant wages. Steve demystifies the real relationship between gold and fiat paper currencies, how interest rate manipulation distorts financial markets, and the one thing that could finally trigger mass adoption of Bitcoin and other crypto-assets.
Porter reveals a misunderstood investment tool you need to learn about before you ever buy a single share of stock.

Buck breaks down recent Russian “collusion confusion” in Washington, what it means for Trump, and how the role of Facebook in the conversation is potentially overblown.
