Why are human intuitions often incorrect when it comes to grasping economic phenomena? What do economists understand that the average person misses? We are joined once again by Prof. Robert Russ, economist, author, and host of the EconTalk podcast, for a riveting discussion about understanding our world through economics. We examine the magic of the markets and how, through its complexities, it provides us with invaluable insight and connection.
