Marketing guru and fund investor Hunter Hastings joins the Human Action podcast for a look at Economics for Entrepreneurs, a new platform which uses Austrian theory to teach actionable entrepreneurship.

Can business acumen be taught, or is it innate? Hunter and Jeff examine consumer sovereignty, value creation, and the theory of the firm, all from a unique Austrian perspective. Austrians have a lot to say about how entrepreneurs ought to think, while business schools fail to adjust to the new decentralized, agile world. Austrian economics provides entrepreneurs with a different set of tools than any business book or MBA program, and our new podcast series will help anyone improve their business or career bottom line.
