1/7/09: The Price of Everything
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – Russell Roberts is an economist at George Mason University and a fellow at Stanford's Hoover Institution. That may seem an unlikely resume for a fiction writer, but he's also recently finished his third novel. It's called The Price of Everything and in it he explores the economic forces that drive prosperity. Roberts says that our economy is able to achieve incredible things - without anyone being in charge. Wednesday, we'll talk to him about his ideas and how they apply to the nation's economic problems.
Russell Roberts is the host of the weekly podcast EconTalk, which is a finalist for Best Podcast in the 2008 Weblog Awards for the third consecutive year. He also blogs at cafehayek.com
