What is the goal of economics? Is it all consumerism and growth? Is there any room for discussion of the human in a study that so often seems to reduce human behavior to cold, mathematical charts and graphs?
In There’s No Free Lunch, Bahnsen writes against the many modern misunderstandings of what economics is and what it is for, and posits a uplifting, back-to-basics thesis that the end goal of economics always is (and always should be) human flourishing. In this episode, the girls dive deeper into Bahnsen’s thesis and discuss how it might serve as a powerful antidote to the increasingly popular attitude that the government needs to exert more control over the free market.
