Real Life Economics

REAL LIFE ECONOMICS is an unabashedly smart, fact-driven podcast, dedicated to stimulating thought on economic issues. Each episode will feature an important economic concept or policy, like "free trade" or "tax reform," that the hosts will break into smaller, more relatable concepts, with an eye towards explaining how the "theories" behind the issues play out in "real life." Unlike other media, however, REAL LIFE ECONOMICS won't tell you what to think about a given issue, but will instead, give you a framework to think critically about economic policy and the messages that politicians, for example, would have you believe.
