Just a quick note to say that I very much enjoyed this interview with John Quiggin on EconTalk about Quiggin’s excellent new book Zombie Economics.

I found it so refreshing to listen to two people with very different ideologies talk through their perspectives without resorting to slogans or seeking to demonise the other side. Quiggin is a social democrat and Russ Roberts, the host of EconTalk is a staunch libertarian, but they explore their areas of agreement and disagreement without yelling at each other or dismissing each other’s arguments. As I said, it’s refreshing.

I wish there was a left-of-centre equivalent of EconTalk.
