Coyle on the soulful science

Diane Coyle talks about her book, The Soulful Science, in the latest episode of EconTalk. It’s a very nice overview of the state of economic research today. And while I think she is overly confident about what we know and don’t know, her book is a very thoughtful introduction to what is going on in the field. Our conversation focuses on growth, the measurement of happiness, and the interaction of economics with the other social sciences.
