Lessons from the Irish Elk: Why the US Debt Burden May Facilitate Its Extinction

Yesterday, our own Eric Fry sat down with Capital Account’s Lauren Lyster to discuss, among other things, the US debt crisis, the “bubble in safety” — which Jim Grant touched on in yesterday’sDR — and how that all relates to the extinction of the Irish Elk. Take a look at this clip from yesterday’s interview.
