A couple of interesting audios from Econ Journal Watch

EJW Audios

Erwin Dekker on Carl Menger on Adam Smith
Erwin Dekker and Stefan Kolev have provided in EJW a first-ever English translation of a remarkable 1891 essay by Carl Menger. In this podcast Dekker discusses the essay, adding context drawn from his own studies (represented by his book The Viennese Students of Civilization: The Meaning and Context of Austrian Economics Reconsidered), to aid in understanding Menger’s times and his legacy.
Frank Machovec on Perfect Competition
Apropos Friedrich Hayek’s essay “The Meaning of Competition,” Frank M. Machovec discusses his book Perfect Competition and the Transformation of Economics (Routledge, 1995).
