    The Downside of Disgust

    The Downside of Disgust

Also: is a little knowledge truly as dangerous as they say?

    How Do You Cure a Compassion Crisis?

Awesome

I´ve heard this podcast for about a couple of years now.
Dubber talk about trendy subjects in Economics, in a very simple way for non economists, full of great examples and interviews to the most relevant scholars and policy makers.
Besides its great for Economists to practice a little english.
Greetings from Argentina.

He escuchado este Podcast por dos años aproximadamente.
Dubber habla de los temas de moda en economía de una manera muy simple dirigida a no economistas, lleno de ejemplos estupendos y de entrevistas con los principales académicos y funcionarios.
Además es estupendo para aquellos economistas que quieren practicar ingles.
Saludos desde Argentina.
