Maeve Cohen, Co-director of Rethinking Economics, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about her organization and its efforts to change economics education. Cohen, who co-founded the Post-Crash Economics Society, argues for a more human-centered approach to economics that would be less confident in its policy prescriptions and more honest about the significance of its underlying assumptions.

I was originally very impressed with Maeve Cohen for starting this movement right out of college. Then later on in the episode  she said that she started college at twenty five. Oh.

In general, not an episode from which I learned a great deal. But it was useful as a refresher.
