  • Good show but stick to economics

    There are moments of wishful economic theory here. Justin shows he is well left of center and mixing it in confuses the material. We see oil prices and know it’s 18 months of halted new oil and pipelines that have hurt this country. As an economist you know an 18 month halt to oil signed on Inauguration Day constricted supply and brought higher prices when we took off our masks and came out of lockdown. Talk about that, it’s real and tangible and there are numbers-think like an economist and sho... more

  • I it

    I teach economics and I am planning to use your podcast recordings in my class to explain these concepts. I suggest looking at more macro concepts.

  • Great content, cringe worthy acting

    I really like the content but I cringe each time Betsy talks. It sounds like she reading off a script and addressing an elementary school class. It's SO close to being good but I literally brace my self for each time she speaks. It would be nice if the moderator pushed back on the concepts and ideas, instead they just sound like scripted questions to bring out the scripted answers. Ironically there are so many great sounding, well produced podcasts with poor content. here we have great content w... more

  • I beg to differ

    I love your show but aggregate supply and aggregate demand show you said that College will show to employers that they can stick with something and will be more productive. I disagree, I am a Service Coordinator for people with Developmental Disabilities and the employees coming out of College are a mix bag, some are great but many are lazy and have no organizational skills and the people without a College degree are dedicated and organized and do a better job. I think that we should stop enco... more

  • Great but also ads are loud and often

    I am an economist, this is an awesome podcast, it’s a great content, and a great reminder for what I learned at school and helpful tool while planning my biz. But the ads are annoying. They first one is 3 times louder then the rest of podcast so it startles me every time. Then the hosts add even more ads in a show that’s less than 20 minutes long. Would have rated it higher but the ads make it borderline unlistenable.
