This week’s EconTalk is Pete Boettke talking about Katrina and the general issue of private voluntary responses to disaster compared to centralized responses. Pete is incredibly well-read so we cover a lot of diverse and interesting ground, including ideas from J. S. Mill, Robert E. Lee, Bastiat, J.B. Say and Grover Cleveland. Hope you enjoy it.
This is the last EconTalk of 2006. We’ll be back on January 8th with Mike Munger talking about price gouging. Scheduled guests after that include Bruce Yandle, John Bogle and Robert Lucas.
Please keep listening and spreading the word.
