Editor’s note: Below is the video of economist Steve Moore’s speech at the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s 2013 West Coast Retreat. The event was held February 22nd-24th at the Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes, California. A transcript of the lecture follows.


Steve Moore: All right. I want to talk a little bit about the sequester and the economy. Joe, if you wouldn’t mind putting up some of these slides I want to show you? Let me start with this, on the sequester.

And I want to simply say that what is going on now with respect to the overheated rhetoric is like nothing that I have ever seen in the 25 years I’ve been in Washington. In fact, what you’ve seen in the last couple weeks is just a prelude to one of the greatest, the most massive propaganda campaign by the Left you’re ever going to see — planes falling from the sky, prisons opening up, school children not having schools to go to, not being immunized — on and on and on and on.

I was really annoyed this morning, I read the front page of the Los Angeles Times. Here’s what they say about the sequester — each side had expected cooler heads to prevail, assuming the other would set aside its political preferences and compromise to prevent the economic problems that are widely expected from a sudden reduction in the flow of federal funds. If the sequester goes through, some economists believe this will lead to 750,000 lost jobs.

Now, ladies and gentlemen, this is bull crap. This is the most outrageous lie. And you know, I’ve got to say this — of all the things I’ve done in my life, one of the things that I’m most proud of is that twice a year, when I would go to San Francisco, I would have dinner with the great Milton Friedman, who was the greatest economist the last hundred years.Scissors-32x32.png
