Every once in a while, (and sometimes each day) I listen to a great podcast, enjoy an article, or see a good video that I want to share with you.
I like to think of them as my e-links:
Friday’s e-links (2/21)
The podcast I most enjoyed this week was an econtalk interview. For almost an hour and a half, I listened to the doctor who started the Surgery Center of Oklahoma. It was fascinating to hear how he calculates the prices he posts. It was valuable to learn about the wheres and whys of medical price distortions. Helping me forget the steep hills I walk and run on. with this one, I stuck with the entire hour and 23 minutes.
Friday’s e-links (2/14)
I have been troubled that easy sounding fixes to big problems obscure the details. This podcast about Kalamazoo’s free tuition plan provides a campaign promise reality check.
Friday’s e-links (2/07)
At AEI, economist Mark Perry has shared with us, on occasion, a “bar chart race.” I selected today’s e-link, “Shares of Total Trade With the US, 1992-2019,” because it perfectly summarizes U.S. trade history in close to 30 seconds. I was riveted as China’s position as a trade partner shifted from last in 1992 to first in 2016, and then down to #3 last year.
