* The End of the Mega States? * with Roman Skaskiw and Andy Duncan

In our latest edition of Radio Free Market World Report, I talk to Roman Skaskiw about the global secession movement and particularly how this applies to the United States and the European Union. We examine why the world’s wealthiest countries, on a per capita basis, tend to be the smallest states, and why the major exception to this general rule, the United States, managed to avoid the trend.

We discuss whether the United States itself should be saved from secession, why European countries tend to be both socialist and independent, and whether the world will move towards a global government or a global constellation of micro-states.

Along the way we mention the Ukraine, Ron Paul, Texas, Belgium, Scotland, Ireland, and Iowa, and many other points in-between.

Roman is a former officer in the US Army who served two full tours in Iraq and Afghanistan who runs his own libertarian website which you can find below:


Much of the interview is based on a recent piece he wrote for Mises.org, which you can find here: http://mises.org/daily/5830/Is-the-United-States-Too-Big-to-Succeed
