What caused the current economic crisis? Did capitalism have something to do with it – or was a moral or political problem lurking behind it? George Mason University economics professor and Hoover Institution research fellow Russell Roberts tackles these sticky questions in a lively and illuminating talk examining our economic system, the financial sector’s political power and the role of debt. Host of the award-winning weekly podcast EconTalk, Roberts has written several economics novels and is a frequent commentator on National Public Radio.
