Does capitalism exploit workers? ‘Swag man wit a do’ tells it straight up

July 22, 2012

I caught this video coming down my facebook feed. My good friend Ian from YAL at UVA had reposted it from LearnLiberty.org. It is called Does Capitalism Exploit Workers:

This great video reminds me of my early podcasting days, when I first tuned in to the Ludwig von Mises Institute while cleaning horse stalls at a local stable in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia. The lecture I recall specifically was Tom DiLorenzo‘s Labor Market Superstitions, from 2006. Tom explains how employers across the labor market bid up wages until those wages approach value of the labor:

I was further charmed by the response video to Does Capitalism Exploit Workers, which was posted by a gentleman who refers to himself as ‘Swag Man Wit A Do’, if I’ve understood him correctly. Swag man implores us to “put some knowledge in our brains” by watching the video above:

He has a whole channel of similarly witty videos. What are you waiting for? Subscribe to both LearnLiberty and Swag man today!

  1. The Government Accountability Office tested the government’s Energy Star program with phony products and found it essentially to be a rubber stamp–except that only 15 of 20 products were accepted and two were rejected.  I wish they’d explained the rejections in a little more detail.

  2. Every time a libertarian stays in the closet, an angel gets its wings ripped off.

  3. We need you out here!!! I highly recommend listening to Mises.org podcasts and watching Reason.tv. After a while, you’ll come to realize that you have ready responses to every statist argument that comes down the tube.  Also, take Christopher Hitchens’s sage advice to heart.
