Capitalism is the engine of prosperity. Capitalism sows the seeds of its own demise. Could both be right? Economists Luigi Zingales (University of Chicago) and Kate Waldock (Georgetown) share the sort of irreverent banter you’d hear between economists at a bar, if economists were capable of sarcasm and social enough to go out to bars.

Phenomenal listen

Luigi and Kate tackle interesting topics with discipline and fun debate. Personal and engaging; it’s like listening to two of your smartest and coolest friends, which is the best you can say about a podcast.

Two super smart economist from 2 different bacgrounds debate respectfully

Title says it all. The two economists come from different coun tries, are of different age, and seem to have some different views on things and yet they debate intelligently and respectfully. Very refreshing and informative.

Monopoly eps are great

I liked the earlier episodes on monopolies. They had a clear point of view, supported by strong evidence with nuance that I learned a lot from. I wish they only chose subjects they felt as strongly about, because some of the episodes are so wishy washy, I have to replay the ending to remember if they ever came to a conclusion about anything.
