PODCAST: Professor Easterly on Development and Individual Freedoms at Columbia Panel

What should we do to end world poverty? Not only do we not know the answer to this question, said Professor Easterly, but this is also the wrong question to ask. He joined Yuval Levin (National Affairs magazine), Meir Kohn (Dartmouth) and James Otteson (Yeshiva University) in a panel discussion on “Seeking the Good Life and Raising Others’ Estates” at the Columbia Tikvah-Hertog Summer Institute on Economics and the Common Good. Listen to the podcast to learn more about answer-finding mechanisms, professional skepticism and M. Night Shyamalan’s aid worker doppelganger.
