An interview I did with Garret Peterson’s podcast, The Economics Detective. Garrett is an economics PhD student at Simon Fraser University. Topics of discussion were the articles I wrote on mathematical economics versus “literary” economics and whether the Austrian School is a cult.
Al-Jazeera English found my article on the basic income interesting enough to invite me on their show for a panel discussion on the subject.
I’ve got to be honest, I’m not very happy with my performance in this interview. I let myself get pigeonholed into defending how the basic income would result in people working less, when I had about six or seven other arguments to make as well. I’ll chalk this one up to inexperience.
Live and learn.
My first ever talk a Mises Meet event in Toronto. I was given only fifteen minutes before the speech to prepare, so expect a lot of ums and ahs. Includes an audience Q&A at the end.
