Robert Higgs In Studio

Readers of this blog know that I highly regard the work of Robert Higgs. Here is his fascinating interview of by Jeff Tucker:

Listen as Higgs and Tucker discuss a wide spectrum of issues including what Higgs considers his primary contribution to political economy, the comparative virtues of contemporary perspectives of important events versus historical retrospection, the nature and consequences of nationalism, the FDA, and how Higgs' views have developed over time. Indicdentally, in my Foundations of Economics I draw on Higgs work on the FDA in my book where I discuss the nature and consequences of government product controls.
