In this episode, we take a big-picture look at economics and question the unquestionable.
What if we told you that Econ 101 was a bunch of BS? What if economics doesn’t reflect the complex reality of human behavior? Could it be that economics isn’t a science at all? We investigate these questions with economic thinkers Nick Hanauer, Eric Beinhocker of Institute for New Economic Thinking, Heather Boushey of Washington Center for Equitable Growth, former Reagan economic advisor Bruce Bartlett, and the team at Civic Skunk Works.
