Two Great EconTalk Interviews

Economics 2 Comments

I highly recommend the following podcasts with Russ Roberts:

==> David Epstein discusses “the sports gene,” but more generally the nature/nurture controversy in Olympic sports.

==> Nassim Taleb discusses “skin in the game.”

These EconTalk podcasts are long and involved; you can’t really listen to them while you’re doing other work. They’re great for listening to in the car, though.

    The Taleb interview is worth listening to twice if you are not familiar with his work.

    Blah, blah, blah.

    More Hayek vs. Keynes rap videos!

    (Or at least a follow up to “Top Dolla – My Dad’s a Proctologist”.)
