Free Speech and Trigger Warnings

Higher education is often thought of as the place where students expand their minds and prepare themselves for their lives and careers. That often means freedom of inquiry and freedom of speech.

The Citizen Economist

Economics factor into almost every part of our professional, social, and personal lives; yet many of us have little understanding how economics shape our world and our places in it. In this episode, we look at economics from a more universal perspective and discuss how understanding the discipline can be as empowering as it is informative.
