This audio clip demonstrates - via Alex Tabarrock - so well why economics has been so interesting to me. By extension of that...why economics is so interesting to me as a CONSERVATIVE! Conservative's simply understand incentives BETTER! Of course, I'm biased ;) ...but this blog has been cataloging quite a bit of good economics(free market/conservative vein) Enjoy!
Ironically enough, the clip is from NPR...oh, well, the learning curve is longest for the bleeding-heart, altruist types...at least, in the practical sense.
Listen here to the short, but rich audio clip on incentive in economics.
