Adam Corfu - Medical Conservative

Another highly informative medical Econtalk podcast. Thrilled to know I have had a Medical Conservative Family doctor for 18 years. I have stayed with him because I thought he approached my care from a “common sense” position. Now I know he is a Medical Conservative. Thanks for all the helpful information.

Love this podcast

Your talk with David Epstein about mastery and specialization is my new favorite episode! Keep up the good work, I love the macro and micro viewpoints you weave us through every episode. Seeing the big picture connected to all the little pictures helps me understand Economics. I’m your “average reader,” 31 years old in bottom level management at my first “real career” at a large, competitive corporation. I like being in charge of my small little world and being measured against my peers. I’m one year away from finishing my bachelors degree in Economics, I plan to get an MBA focusing on data analytics. My career gives me tuition reimbursement and I’m fortunate to work in a job I can apply my analytical mental skill sets at the same time. Once I finish my degree and pay off my house I plan to retire and run a small business, hopefully before I’m 60! Your talks are the perfect length for my workout and I look forward to them every week, keep up the great work!
