Latest Episodes

Episode 43 - Comparative Advantage

EThis week we're talking about Comparative Advantage and asking the question "why should we engage in trade." I cover both the concept as well as its originator, David Ricardo, who you will discover is in fact "The Most Interesting Man in the World."

Episode 43 - Comparative Advantage

Episode 42 - The Wealth of Nations 1.11.2 - Rent of Land part 2

EThis week we're back with part two of chapter eleven of book 1 of Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations, and this one is massive. We're covering what is known as the Digression on Silver, and wondering if you can call something a digression when it's almost 100 pages long.

EThis week we're covering part 1 of Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nation Book 1 Chapter 11: Of the Rent of Land, where we discover exactly why the rent is too damn high, and it has more to do with wheat prices than you might think.

Episode 39 - The Economics of Star Trek

EI sit down with Gus Shepard to talk about the possible future of the economy in terms of how realistic the scenarios laid out in the various iterations of Star Trek might be. We cover an economy without currency and whether or not we will hit a point of efficiency that will mean that no one has to work anymore.

Episode 37 - Objectivism

EI take this episode to talk about a topic which is always irritating to me, that of Objectivism. Specifically, Objectivism when it's applied to economics. It's safe to say, I'm not a fan of Ayn Rand.
