Correlation is not Causation

Many political pundits often confuse correlation with causation, and often when they try to explain how it can plausibly be a causal relationship… it’s not that plausible in my opinion. In this video I discuss how many trends make more sense when you reverse the flow of causation, but again there isn’t any absolute way to ever know.

One things that people on the left wing of the political spectrum care about a lot is labor markets and wages, so understanding the economics of labor is important if one is to engage someone of the left in the hopes of putting a little libertarianism in their life. I’ve created this video to educate people about the ideas and concepts regarding labor markets and the issues on how government should or shouldn’t be involved in them.
