Websites We Love: Econtalk

December 20, 2009

The Library of Economics and Liberty has put together an excellent collection of talks by major economists and statisticians on myriad topics on this website.  Host Russ Roberts talks to featured guests, professors, authors, and Nobel Prize winners about the economics behind current events, markets, the Great Depression, free trade, and the curiosities of everyday decision-making and New talks are updated almost every week, and while you may not always agree with the experts , it is always fun to listen to them. Some of our favorites are Nassem Taleb on the current financial crisis (http://www.econtalk.org/archives/2009/03/taleb_on_the_fi.html),  The great Milton Friedman himself on Money (http://www.econtalk.org/archives/2006/08/milton_friedman.html) and the always entertaining Michael Lewis on the Economics of Sports (http://www.econtalk.org/archives/_featuring/michael_lewis/) Add a couple of these talks to your I Pod and get an excellent mental and physical work out the next time you go for a walk.

Pay special attention to the related links beneath each talk for additional related reading and the comments that (like everywhere else on the internet, occasionally get lively! Pay a visit to the website right now, and we promise you won’t be disappointed!
