Michael Munger of Duke University talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about whether real capitalism is unstable and leads inevitably to crony capitalism. They also discuss ways to prevent the descent into cronyism and speculate on their own blind spots.

A terribly unsatisfying episode. Just theorising, polite acknowledgement of their own biases, and referring to very little data. But one mushy episode once in a while is pretty high quality anyhow.
