Rank #1: Income and Wealth Inequality with David R. Henderson.
…or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Inequality. David R. Henderson (http://www.davidrhenderson.com) is a research fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, and a professor of economics at the Graduate School of Business and Public Policy, Naval Postgraduate School, in Monterey, California. Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the 21st Century (http://amzn.to/1LT9jLG) managed to do something unprecedented among equation-dense economic tomes, it became the #1 selling book on Amazon.com. The book tapped in to a hot topic among politicians and the general public: the high (and possibly rising) wealth and income shares of the top 1%. However, David points out that although the book was a best-seller, it wasn’t actually a best-reader. Amazon logs the sentences people highlight, and the top five most-highlighted sentences in Capital all appear in the first 26 pages (www.wsj.com/articles/the-summers-most-unread-book-is-1404417569). It seems that, at least among kindle readers, most people didn’t make it past the introduction. It appears that people buy the book to back up the views they already hold. David thinks that the huge interest in economic inequality in general and the wealth of the 1% in particular was sparked in the 1990s by politicians, including Al Gore, and picked up by journalists like Sylvia Nasar (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sylvia_Nasar), before influencing the economics debate. Piketty has been able to ride this wave of public interest at what appears to be its crest. David distinguishes between inequality of wealth, inequality of income, and inequality of power. Income inequality is the difference in the amount of income we each take in in wages, interest, dividends, and government transfers (e.g. welfare or social security payments), the four main sources of income for most people. Wealth should ideally include the total value of a person’s assets in addition to the stream of income he is likely to earn in the future, though this stream is more often ignored in wealth statistics. Wealth inequality is not the same as income inequality. Critically, since people earn variable income throughout their lives, income inequality doesn’t capture what we think of as the gap between “rich” and “poor.” Retired people who own two-million-dollar homes might have low incomes, but they certainly aren’t poor. Or, to use an example that’s relevant to myself, as a PhD student my income probably sits in the bottom quintile, and yet I can expect a much higher income after I graduate. The major factor in both income inequality and wealth inequality (measured by current assets and not expected earnings) is age. Teenagers earn little or nothing, but they grow into adults and gain skills and education, their incomes rise, and they gain wealth through savings. Even if everyone had the same lifetime earnings, there would still be significant inequality in any given year since some people would be young low-earners, while others would be older, wealthier high-earners. And since the older people would have had the chance to accumulate wealth over a lifetime, they would have twenty times the wealth of their younger counterparts. While there is a correlation between wealth and power, that correlation is by no means perfect. David gives the example of Bill Gates who discovered the hard way that when you have too little political influence, it can be costly. Gates was hit with a long and costly antitrust suit, after which he greatly expanded his lobbying efforts; he had learned his lesson. David agrees with Joseph Stiglitz’ argument (http://amzn.to/1LT9dDC), to some extent, that large accumulations of wealth are the result of rent seeking. Local governments restrict the building of new homes and developments that could expand the supply of housing. Thus, they keep real estate prices artificially high to the benefit of those who already own their homes. This is an example of successful rent seeking by homeowners to the detriment of non-homeowners. However, while Stiglitz would argue that this justifies a higher tax rate on the wealthy, David prefers the more direct solution of simply reducing or removing these restrictions.

Rank #2: Drinking Through the Unfree World with Ben Powell.
Ben Powell joins the podcast today to discuss his new book, Socialism Sucks: Two Economists Drink Their Way Through the Unfree World, coauthored with Robert Lawson. The book is a combination of economic analysis and Anthony-Bourdain-style travel diary. Do We Have to Say It Again? Socialism Sucks! Apparently we do. Because today millions of Americans—young and old—are flocking to the socialist banner and chanting, “What do we want? Socialism—the economic system that has impoverished people everywhere and resulted in the deaths of tens of millions! And when do we want it? Now!” Really? Most people seem somehow to have missed Economics 101 and don’t understand that socialism isn’t nice, cuddly government that takes care of everything for you so that you can remain an adolescent forever. No, we’ve seen it tried over and over again with catastrophic consequences. Luckily, two semi-sober economists have toured the socialist world so you don’t have to. And they’ve come back with this stunning report: Socialism Sucks!

The Hayek Program Podcast includes audio from lectures, interviews, and discussions of scholars and visitors from the F. A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. The F. A. Hayek Program is devoted to the promotion of teaching and research on the institutional arrangements that are suitable for the support of free and prosperous societies. Implicit in this statement is the presumption that those arrangements are to some extent open to conscious selection, as well as the appreciation that the type of arrangements that are selected within a society can influence significantly the economic, political, and moral character of that society.The Hayek Program Podcast is partially funded by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation on "Work, Self-governance, and the Challenge of Unsustainable Dependency." The Grant is for a three-year project to explore the themes of work and self-governance as well as the root causes and consequences of the modern shift toward a greater reliance on government efforts to solve collective challenges.

The Becker Friedman Institute at the University of Chicago supports inquiry on significant economic and policy questions.
Rank #1: Economics Amplified: When Game Theory Gets Complicated.
In today’s episode we talk with Ben Brooks, a research fellow at the Becker Friedman Institute interested in how incomplete information complicates classical game theory. This summer, Brooks organized a conference, bringing together experts in mathematical modeling, incomplete information and game theory. Researchers highlighted important developments in modeling information in auctions and continuous games, as well as the relationship between information and behavior in the era of the internet and big data.
Rank #2: Economics Amplified: Measuring Long Term Outcomes of Social Insurance Programs.
In this episode, we speak with Manasi Deshpande, who currently works at the Institute as a postdoctoral research fellow leading up to joining the UChicago Economics Department as an assistant professor in the fall of 2016. Deshpande’s research interests include the effects of social insurance and public assistance programs on consumption, health, and well being, and the interaction between these programs and labor markets. By taking advantage of newly available data from the Social Security Administration, she's able to gather quantitative insights into the impact that social insurance programs have on long-term outcomes of their recipients, important when weighing their overall benefits and costs.

The s+b/K@W podcasts draw on the insights of experts at Booz Allen and the Wharton School to bridge the gap between theory and practice in contemporary global business.
Rank #1: Business in the Middle East.
Despite the ongoing global recession, the Middle East "is still one of the better places to be," according to Joe Saddi, chairman of Booz & Company and managing director of the firm's Middle East business. In an interview with Knowledge@Wharton conducted during the recent Wharton Global Alumni Forum in Dubai, Saddi noted that although sectors such as real estate and tourism have been hit hard, the region's underlying growth fundamentals remain positive. And although Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) companies will need to be prudent and maintain enough cash to weather the current storm, now is the perfect time for them to "go on the offensive" and "take advantage of the recession to acquire or stake out a stronger strategic position."
Rank #2: High-Leverage Innovation, Part Three.
Money isn't the key to successful innovation. In fact, many companies spend far less than their competitors on R&D to achieve far better performance. To learn why that's the case, strategy+business and Knowledge@Wharton spoke with Kevin Dehoff, a partner at Booz & Company, and Karl Ulrich, Wharton professor of operations and information management. In this final part of a three-part series, Dehoff and Ulrich talk about innovation in the auto industry -- what constitutes it, why some manufacturers, like Toyota, are more innovative than others, and the role that customers play in innovative product development.

Interviews with Economists about their New Books
Rank #1: Caitlin C. Rosenthal, “Accounting for Slavery: Masters and Management” (Harvard UP, 2018).
The familiar narrative of American business development begins in the industrial North, where paternalistic factory owners, committed to a kind of Protestant ethic, scaled up their operations into ‘total institutions’—an effort to forestall labor turnover by providing housing and fulfilling community needs. Many of these firms were, of course, dependent on the availability of cotton from the South where, as Caitlin C. Rosenthal argues, modern management practices were expanded and refined through experimentation with enslaved workers. Accounting for Slavery: Masters and Management (Harvard University Press, 2018) resituates the development of scientific record-keeping and labor optimization practices within the Atlantic slave trade. The book pays close attention to how sophisticated reporting practices, emerging from the standard record books that circulated throughout the Atlantic world, allowed planters to rate and categorize enslaved people in a generalizable way. The book is an invitation to rethink the genealogy of business management, to disabuse professionals of a claim to moral distance from a time when unfettered legal control over a labor force—as capital—created hitherto unknown opportunities for knowledge production and experimentation with efficiency.

Rank #2: Jonathan Swarts, “Constructing Neoliberalism: Economic Transformation in Anglo-American Democracies” (University of Toronto Press, 2013).
The new book, Constructing Neoliberalism: Economic Transformation in Anglo-American Democracies (University of Toronto Press, 2013) shows how political elites in Britain, New Zealand, Australia and Canada successfully introduced radically new economic policies in the 1980s. While opinion polls have consistently showed that neoliberal policies are not popular, governments in all four countries have continued implementing an agenda that includes government spending cuts, the privatization of state-owned enterprises and free trade. The book’s author, Jonathan Swarts, Associate Professor of Political Science at Purdue University North Central in northwestern Indiana, says he finds it fascinating how governments of all political stripes in the four Anglo-American democracies have adopted neoliberalism, which he calls a new “political-economic imaginary.” In this interview with the New Books Network, Professor Swarts discusses how political leaders in the four Anglo-American democracies brought about the neoliberal economic transformation using a combination of persuasion and coercion.

This is the audio from the Marginal Revolution University video course on the Great Economists taught by professors Tyler Cowen and Alex Tabarrok. In this course, you’ll find answers to questions like: Who were the first economic thinkers? What did early economists understand that has been lost to the modern world? You’ll also find a chapter-by-chapter overview of Adam Smith’s foundational work, The Wealth of Nations. For more econ knowledge, visit mruniversity.com
Rank #1: Adam Smith.
Adam Smith was arguably the greatest economist of all time, and Wealth of Nations is his greatest book. It remains a masterpiece to this day, and we set out to study it once again. Please join us in this quest to understand and to see the invisible hand!
Rank #2: Wealth of Nations, Book One.
The opening parts of The Wealth of Nations have some of the most important material ever produced by economists. Smith covers the division of labor, the origins of exchange, and the critical question of why productivity differs across nations and regions. If you are going to study only one part of Wealth of Nations, this should be it.
We must make the moral case for capitalism and the free market! We must go on offense and stop going on defense everytime someone argues about the "evils" of the free market and capitalism. This is the only way to fight back against these people who think they have the moral high ground! And we can! The truth and history is on our side. John D. Rockefeller and Henry Ford made life better for the average Amercian, not worse. We must be able to argue and pursuade people and show them that capitalism is the most moral system. When the rich get richer it doesn't hurt the poor, instead it makes the poor better off. To get rich in a captialist system means we must provide a good/service that people want and will make them better off. Henry Ford didn't get rich by selling cars only to the rich. He got rich when he made a car cheap enough that the average American could afford. And look at how the car revolutionized society and how much freedom it gave to the individual. We must fight for this! Listen to my podcast and together we can DEFEND THE FREE MARKET!!!
Rank #1: Donald Trump explains what he’s doing now in his 1987 book, “The Art of the Deal!” Also, what Rush Limbaugh gets wrong!.
Donald Trump literally lays out what he’s doing now in his presidential campaign from his 1987 book, “The Art of the Deal.” Trump says you need to be a little outrageous, controversial and talk big! Yes, Trump says play to people’s fantasies because most people don’t think big themselves, but they love to rally around someone who does! Can you say, build a big, beautiful wall?! The most fascinating quotes from Trump’s book are read in this episode. Also, Rush Limbaugh is considered “Mr. Conservative” but is conservatism really at the top of his list? Don’t miss this episode where all this is explained!
Rank #2: 69% of Americans admit to having less than $1000 in the bank! Is this partly the result of the payment mentality?.
69% of Americans admit to have less than a $1000 in the bank! Why is this? Even the retirees out there die broke. 46% of retirees die with less than $10,000 in the bank. That’s not much money when you’re not bringing in income and are relying on savings! There’s no question there’s a lot of factors that have led to the average American being broke and the payment mentality is certainly one of the many contributing factors. In the last 17 years we have seen a 4% rise in median wages and an 89% increase in home prices. So the purchasing power of our wages has gone down so the average American is poorer today! This is the result of government spending hitting record levels! The governments spends money at the detriment to the average American.

Rank #1: 34: Wage Stagnation.
Rank #2: 35: Responses to Labor Saving Technical Changes.
Ever shaken an invisible hand? Been flattened by a falling market? Or wondered what took the bend out of Phillips' curve? David Mitchell helps reveal some of the great dilemmas faced by governments trying to run an economy - whether to save or spend, control inflation, regulate trade, fix exchange rates, or just leave everyone to get on with it and not intervene. You'll learn why Adam Smith put such a high price on free markets, how Keynes found a bold new way to reduce unemployment, and what economists went on to discover about the impact of policy on people's and businesses' behaviour - which may not always be entirely rational...
Rank #1: Rational Choice Theory.
Without a belief in rational behaviour, it’s hard to design an economic policy with predictable results. In practice, people's errors or misinformed choices can frustrate policy design.
Rank #2: The Invisible Hand.
Economist, Adam Smith, used the term The Invisible Hand to describe the self-regulating nature of the market place - a core concept for so-called free-marketeers.
