Rationally Speaking | Official Podcast of New York City Skeptics - Current Episodes - RS 232 - Tyler Cowen on “Defending big business against its critics”
Economist Tyler Cowen discusses his latest book, "Big Business: A Love Letter to an American Anti-Hero." Why has anti-capitalist sentiment increased recently, and to what extent is it justified? How much are corporations to blame for wage stagnation, climbing cost of living, or the slow response to climate change? Tyler and Julia also explore their various disagreements: on how to communicate, whether people should bet on their beliefs, and whether we should increase public optimism about technology.
