Episode details

Prof. Cowen and I had an interview on topics ranging from economic growth as a moral imperative, the nature of UFOs, whether rent seeking is a drain on the economy, and whether Plato, pumpkin spice, and the Founding Fathers are overrated, why we should (or shouldn’t) care about chess, and how to think about failure, among other topics.

Tyler Cowen is the Holbert L. Harris chair in economics at George Mason University, Faculty Director at the Mercatus Center, and co-author of the popular blog Marginal Revolution.
