Phil Miller, King Banaian, and I had a long discussion this morning on one of Jim Reese's radioeconomics podcasts. Here is his summary:
Discussion about the economics of education, economic education, and economic freedom. Items covered: vouchers, student retention, outsourcing of freshman and sophomore courses, comparative advantage, free markets, measures of economic freedom, and recommendations of economics books for non-economists.
Next week at 9am EDT we will be discussing "The Economics of the World Series".
We have chosen to hold the discussion then because it will be after the league championships have been decided but before the World Series begins.
The discussion will be carried live, via Breeze, so that listeners can type questions to us during the discussion, and both the transcript of the typing and the audio of the discussion will then be available for downloading later in the day.
