Robert Higgs on the History of the American Warfare State

Few historians know more about the history of the American warfare state during the twentieth century than Robert Higgs. In this probing interview (audio here), Higgs gives his thoughts on the forgotten depression of the early 1920s, the Great Depression, World War II, the hubris of wartime leaders, past and present, and the current financial crisis.

Bob Higgs is just a genius. The sheer amount of detail he provides in his "Crisis and Leviathan" is indicative of someone who does thorough research and really knows his stuff.

I'm going to be adapting his ideas to the Australian context for my undergraduate thesis, so kudos to Higgs for his trail-blazing work.
