Cornell Economist, Robert Frank, interviewed by Diane Rehm. http://thedianerehmshow.org/shows/2011-10-27/robert-frank-darwin-economy-liberty-competition-and-common-good
Adam Smith's economic analysis is limited to a narrow band of "special cases."
Alternatively, Charles Darwin - aided by the extinct Irish elk - identifies the ruling rubrics of economic life.
Wherever you reside on the political spectrum, this interview will alter your understanding of economics - significantly and forever.
Not only does Professor Frank provide comprehensive framing of humankind's economic behavior, he also sets forth a simple, elegant tax plan that enables every citizen to control his own tax rate.
