What are the defining differences between libertarianism and conservatism? The Mises Institute’s Jeff Deist joins Kevin for a thought-provoking discussion into the nuances of libertarian policy, understanding economics, and the role of humanity and faith in the public square.

A former member of Ron Paul’s congressional staff and a leading light in the libertarian movement, Jeff Deist currently serves as President of the Mises Institute; a libertarian nonprofit think tank. Deist takes particular interest in private legal systems and private money as tools for radically decentralizing political power.

Each episode of The Kevin Roberts Show is a weekly rallying cry for lovers of freedom everywhere, packed with Dr. Roberts’ analysis on the issues of the day and deep conversations with the movers and shakers of American politics and culture. And all of it backed by the academic excellence of The Heritage Foundation.

As a former college professor and current president of The Heritage Foundation, America’s most influential policy organization, Dr. Roberts has spent his career learning, educating, and taking decisive action for a brighter America. He believes that conservatives have every reason to be hopeful, because conservative ideas are ideas that work. It’s time to go on offense.
