Auburn University professor Dr. Liliana Stern joins a special live episode of the Human Action Podcast for an unvarnished look at the state of economics education today. Why are theory and history ignored, while warmed-over Keynesian models dominate? How can Austrians reclaim their rightful place in the curriculum? Are economics students finding jobs? Why do academic publishing and textbook rackets persist? And why is actual teaching such a low priority?

If you care about how economics is taught today, don't miss this show!
