Cultural Innovators and the GMU PhD Program

Summary:
Listen to Tyler Cowen at the 50 min mark and following discuss his own personal situation at GMU and why our PhD program is so AWESOME. [embedded content] The entire episode is self-recommending with Glenn Loury and Tyler Cowen, so after you speed ahead go back and listen to the entire thing.  Also, it was amazing that Glenn gave the shout out to David Skarbek and Daniel D'Amico and the work they are doing at Brown, and how well they reflect the breadth and depth of our program at GMU.  Both Dave and Dan wrote their PhD thesis under my supervision, and I am thrilled to see them get this recognition by a senior scholar as distinguished and accomplished at Glenn Loury. Keep up the great work Dave and Dan, continue to make Political Theory Project great, and to reflect so strongly
