The bestselling author of More Sex is Safer Sex: The Unconventional Wisdom of Economics and The Armchair Economist: Economics and Everyday Life should be a crowd-pleaser. RSVP now, to guarantee a seat.
A talk about how simple principles of economics can have surprising conclusions, with emphasis on the question: "How do you know when the world has too much or too little of something?"
Examples will include "How do we use basic ideas of economics to tell us whether the world has too much or too little pollution? Too much or too little population growth? Too much or too little casual sex?".
