USA's Capitalist Economic System Vs. Sports Leagues Socialist Systems with Nelson Blake (Marvel, DC, Locked in a Vacancy)
Play • 2 hr 10 min

Doc welcomes comic artist and guitarist, Nelson Blake II, to the show for the third time. They discuss the differences between the American free market-based capitalist economic system that limits trends like unions, wealth redistribution, or over-dependence on welfare, and compares it to the highly regulated systems of professional sports leagues (mainly the National Basketball Association) that incentivize competitive balance so that there is more fairness across these leagues, as to give teams a chance to win and court free agents.

This episode features the song "Scars" by The Dead Year.
