Russ Roberts on the 2008 Financial Crisis, Changing Your Mind, and Intellectual Humility

Historically Thinking

Russ Roberts is not a philosopher but an economist, as the many listeners to his extremely popular podcast Econtalk can attest. But he strives, I think, to enact truth in dialogue. He is not afraid to proclaim his own opinion, but seeks to understand as best as he can the opinion of those he’s talking with. And he’s also reticent to proclaim that he knows things that he doesn’t actually know.
