Weekly articles as companion to my daily videos on what’s happening to our economy and to our freedoms. New articles every Saturday morning.
My name’s Peter St Onge. I’m an economist at the Heritage Foundation, a Fellow at the Mises Institute, a former MBA professor, and an ex-bartender.
I started writing this newsletter in 2021 to call out the smoke and mirrors and outright lies our “leaders” use to take our money and our freedom. It’s a joy to write, and I hope you’ll enjoy reading!

Since I was a kid I’ve loved economics as a way to figure out how the world works and how to make it better. But my first career was in corporate marketing, which really disappointed my mother.
On lunch-breaks I gambled on dot-coms, retiring at 25 to a remote Thai island. One day I boated in for provisions, walked into an internet cafe, and discovered I’d lost all my money in the crash. So I bartended in an Osaka dive-bar, then returned to marketing at a Japanese multinational — Takara, the maker of Transformers.
I craved brain-food so went back for the PhD in economics and became an MBA professor in decidedly un-woke Taiwan. Where I failed to buy enough Bitcoin to retire again.
Nowadays I’m an economist at Heritage, a Fellow at the Mises Institute, and I make daily videos on economics and freedom. Basically what I used to teach but fewer hung-over grad students.
I also post daily videos that I gather up into a weekly podcast:
And I’m always on twitter as profstonge 🥳
