Professor Per Bylund of Oklahoma State University is the author of The Seen, The Unseen, and the Unrealized. 2020 is the year social scientists failed to show us the unseen, namely the staggering and still unfolding economic, social, medical, and human costs of Covid lockdowns. Dr. Bylund and Jeff Deist discuss Covid and government responses against the backdrop of ripple effects, Say's law, "market failure," and the inability of bureaucrats to make rational tradeoffs. They also discuss Dr. Bylund's upcoming project for the Mises Institute: an Austrian economics primer, under 100 pages, available as a very inexpensive paperback.
