This past Friday, the third episode of the Freakonomics Podcast hosted by Steven Dubner and Steve Levitt featured our own Patri Friedman. The discussion centered on the question, “What if economists ruled the world?”
From this episode’s description:
Pretend for a moment that our highest elected officials, instead of acting like the lawyers that they are, were replaced by economists. You’ll hear from the economists Steve Levitt and Russ Roberts, former Estonian prime minister Mart Laar, and from a grandson of Milton Friedman about this supposedly rosy future.
You can pick up the podcast by searching the iTunes music store for “Freakonomics podcast”, or through the podcast’s own RSS feed.
