On this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, we'll hear a book panel discussion of Manufacturing Militarism: U.S. Government Propaganda in the War on Terror, written by Christopher J. Coyne & Abigail R. Hall. Applying a political-economic approach to the incentives created by a democratic system with a massive national security state, Coyne and Hall delve into case studies from the War on Terror to show how propaganda operates in a democracy. Peter Boettke moderates the panel, which is joined by two commentators — Randall G. Holcombe, DeVoe Moore Professor of Economics at Florida State University, and Risa Brooks, Allis Chalmers Associate Professor of Political Science at Marquette University.
