Karen Rands is an economist by training and passion.  In March 2019 she interviewed Dr. Mark Thornton of the Mises Institute at Auburn about his book The Skyscraper Curse and discussed the factor leading to his prediction, based on Austrian Business Cycle Theory, of an economic collapse in 2020.   In the middle of a pandemic, extreme civil unrest, extremists bent on destruction, we find ourselves in the beginning of what many predict as the greatest economic collapse since the Great Depression.  Dr. Thornton joins Karen on the Compassionate Capitalist Podcast show to discuss the cause and triggers of this economic collapse and ideas for how we will create an economic recovery.  Will cannabis be the holy grail to solve our problems at multiple levels?
