Featuring: Dr. Tyler Cowen General Director Mercatus Center at George Mason University
Economics is not just a class you took back in college. Widely popular books, such as Freakonomics and The Undercover Economist, have proven that economics is everywhere. In his latest book, Discover Your Inner Economist, George Mason University economics professor and Mercatus Center General Director Tyler Cowen continues the recent trend of exposing economic incentives as they play out in every day life. The far-reaching influence of economic insight might surprise you.
In an interactive and entertaining discussion on his new book, Dr. Cowen engages policy makers on some of the surprising ways economic reasoning can play out in dealing with constituents, creating effective public policy, and even falling in love.
