Journalist and author Binyamin Appelbaum of the New York Times talks about his book, The Economists’ Hour, with EconTalk host Russ Roberts. Appelbaum blames the triumph of free-market ideology for the rise in inequality and the decline in growth rates over the last half-century. The result is a lively, civil conversation about the economic events over that time period and the role of economists in changing economic policy.

  • Another ‘well trodden path’ episode of EconTalk.
  • That said, this would be a fascinating single serve episode if you had to be either introduced to EconTalk or listen to only one episode your whole life.
