Retirement does not suit Thomas Sowell. He is working away. He tells Jay he wants to die with his boots on. He does enjoy freedom from his syndicated column, however. It means he does not have to keep up with the news as much. His latest book is a revised, expanded version of “Discrimination and Disparities.” As Jay says (and Sowell agrees), he likes to write books that address and correct public misunderstandings – especially when those misunderstandings lead to bad policy. In this “Q&A,” Sowell talks about equality, diversity, IQ, immigration, free enterprise, and a host of other issues. Clear thinking and clear expression are Sowell’s stock in trade.

    Wonderful podcast. Terrific interview. Jay got the esteemed economist to open up more than in other podcasts I’ve listened to–and I always listen to (and often re-listen to) any podcast featuring Dr. Sowell.

    Thanks, Jay!

    There just aren’t enough superlatives to describe Thomas Sowell. It’s heartbreaking to consider that we probably won’t have him much longer but what a gift he has been.
