Description

During the year I had the absolute honor to converse with some of the brightest minds in the economics. They shared with me their thinking, research and teaching methods and I personally learned a lot from them. I hope that you benefited from these conversations and that you personally felt part of it. It was difficult to choose who to include, or more accurately who to leave out. I decided on a number of common themes for this 'Best of 2016' episode. So I hope you enjoy these sound bites and if you're new to the show, I hope that this episode will give you a taste of the content in the catalogue of episodes that lie await for you on the Economic Rockstar podcast.
