Economics professor Christopher Coyne sits down for an interview about the economics of Valentine's Day. Why can the most economically efficient gift also be the most offensive? What does this have to do with deadweight loss? What would Bastiat say?

Prof. Coyne is the F.A. Harper professor of economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. This interview was also recorded as a podcast for KOSMOS, http://www.kosmosonline.org/. The podcast can be downloaded free from iTunes here:
