    The Economics of Flourishing: James Heckman & Rasmus Landerso on Skills Development

    The Economics of Flourishing: James Heckman & Rasmus Landerso on Skills Development

    In our first episode of the Economics of Flourishing Series, Dr. James Heckman and Dr. Ramsus Landersø explore how various elements like markets, family structures, and educational systems contribute to social mobility and human development. They discuss the significant impact of parental engagement and the structure of family life on children's futures. Social mobility rates in Denmark and the United States are also compared, shedding light on the crucial role of parental quality and the process of sorting in educational success. The influence of neighborhood dynamics and housing choices is explored, along with why government programs might fall short in promoting true equality. Join us as we challenge conventional beliefs, advocate for open debates, and emphasize the importance of engaging with diverse viewpoints to foster a more understanding and tolerant society.

    Dr. Heckman and Dr. Landersø help us gain insights into how we can collectively enhance human flourishing through informed choices and robust community engagement.

In 2000, Dr. Heckman won the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel for his "for his development of theory and methods used in the analysis of individual or household behavior. His work in selective samples led him to develop methods (such as the Heckman correction) for overcoming statistical sample-selection problems. His research has given policymakers new insights into areas such as education, job training and the importance of accounting for general equilibrium in the analysis of labor markets."
