EconTalk this week

EconTalk host Russ Roberts talks about the role of empirical evidence and bias in economics and why economists disagree. Roberts talks about how his interviews with various economists at EconTalk have forced him to reassess the role of empirical evidence in various debates in economics and economic policy. Roberts is joined by Robin Hanson of George Mason University for counterpoint and therapeutic advice for those uneasy about the scientific or non-scientific nature of economics.

Last night I listened to the Econtalk discussion with Thomas Hazlitt. My favourite Econtalk, I think. Hazlitt was bursting with insight about telecomms and net neutrality.
