My Chat with Economist Robert Frank, Author of Success and Luck (THE SAAD TRUTH_171)

We discuss the role of luck in our daily lives, the relevance of evolutionary psychology in economics, professors’ political affiliations, the mathematization of economics, the income tax versus a progressive consumption tax, and the political correctness rampant on university campuses, among other topics.
