  2. Robert Skidelsky on Money, the Good Life, and How Much is Enough

    Robert Skidelsky, noted biographer of John Maynard Keynes and author (with his son Edward) of the recently published How Much is Enough, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about materialism, growth, insatiability, and the good life. Skidelsky argues that we work too hard and too long. He argues that the good life has more leisure than we currently consume and that public policy should be structured to discourage work in wealthy countries where work can still be uninspiring. Skidelsky criticizes the discipline of economics and economists for contributing to an obsession with growth to the detriment of what he says are more meaningful and life-enhancing policy goals.

  3. EconTalk - Diane Coyle on the Soulful Science

    Diane Coyle talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the ideas in her new book, The Soulful Science: What Economists Really Do and Why it Matters. The discussions starts with the issue of growth—measurement issues and what economists have learned and have yet to learn about why some nations grow faster than others and some don’t grow at all. Subsequent topics include happiness research, the politics and economics of inequality, the role of math in economics, and policy areas where economics has made the greatest contribution.

  4. Economic Growth | How & How NOT to Do Economics with Robert Skidelsky

    One of the central subjects of economics is wealth. But there is not just one narrative of economic growth, but a multitude. In this third lecture in the INET series “How and How Not to do Economics,” Robert Skidelsky looks at three stories of development: neoclassical, structuralist, and Marxist.

    INET sincerely thanks the Julis-Rabinowitz Family for their generous support, who named this series to honor the spirit of a great educator and economic thinker, Uwe Reinhardt.

    For nearly 50 years, the late Uwe Reinhardt was a beloved economist and professor at Princeton University. Known best for helping to shape critical discourse around healthcare markets, his biting wit and intellect challenged students, colleagues, and policymakers alike to follow the data and to check all assumptions at the door.

  7. #1303 Techniques for rapid growth – with George Revutsky

    The person who you’re about to meet is someone who I got to know at a dinner recently. A past Mixergy interviewee put a dinner together of people who were doing growth for companies. And as I talked to today’s guest, I realized he’s really interesting. He’s got this process for doing growth. He runs a company that does growth for his clients. He keeps dropping out of this company. It just keeps running on its own. He drops out and he does growth for other businesses. So I brought him on here to talk about how he did it. George Revutsky is the founder of ROIworks, a consulting company that offers growth in a box to startups and fast-growing companies.
