Weekend Links

EconTalk: Life lessons with intelligent conversation about literary criticism and economics thrown in, featuring two amazing human beings: the first, Russ Roberts, the genius of Econ Talk; the second, D.G. Meyers, the terminally ill literary critic and subject of the interview.  If you do nothing else for self-improvement this weekend, make sure to spend 70 minutes and listen to this podcast.  And then do yourself (and others) a further favor by sharing it with those you care about.  This is what heroism sounds like.

And here's a link to one of Meyers's recent articles discussed in the Econtalk podcast above.

More influence from the EconTalk episode: tremendous, clear, enjoyable Russ Roberts article on the all-important concept of "opportunity cost".

"What would your country do?"
