EconTalk with Glen Weyl

Summary:
Eric Posner and Glen Weyl have published a book that is deservedly attracting a lot of attention.  It will pay the readers of Coordination Problem great intellectual returns to invest significant time in studying this book very carefully.  Make no mistake, this is a book about designing markets, and using market-like institutions to realize normative aspirations in politics and society.  It is ambitious and bold, and I think it should excite the imagination and motivate careful scholarship and analytical rigor among both critics and those who want to pursue the line of argument laid out in Radical Markets. A great start to your study of this work would be the conversation between Russ Roberts and Glen this week on EconTalk.
