Joe Arpaio

Price Gougers Are Heroes! [Podcast]

Reason editors discuss Hurricane Harvey, the pardon of Joe Arpaio, Al Franken 2020, Antifa, and more.


"Price gougers are heroes," says Reason's Katherine Mangu-Ward. When "people who go into disaster zones, we generally praise them," but when their motivations include "mak[ing] money…suddenly they're villains."

In the latest Reason podcast, Mangu-Ward joins Nick Gillespie, Matt Welch, and Andrew Heaton to talk about market fundamentals in hurricane-addled Houston, and why Joe Arpaio's presidential pardon is worse than merely letting a deplorable lawman walk free.

Democrats are eyeballing Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) as a presidential candidate in 2020, and he might have a secret weapon against Trump.

Plus why Antifa is violent, terrible, and boring.
