What’s Wrong with Mainstream Economics?

In this episode of The Yaron Brook Show, Don Watkins interviews economist Arnold Kling about his new book Specialization and Trade: A Re-introduction to Economics. Together they cover topics such as economics as a science, the “unsustainability” of recycling, market solutions to “market failures,” government interferences in health care and the role of finance.


Arnold Kling is the author of several books, including From Poverty to Prosperity: Intangible Assets, Hidden Liabilities and the Lasting Triumph over Scarcity and Crisis of Abundance: Rethinking How We Pay for Health Care, published by the Cato Institute. Kling blogs at ArnoldKling.com/blog.
