Robert Frank hits the big time (OK Lehrer News Hour)

Intentionally crummy cellphone pic showing Bob and friend on TV.

Bob’s new book, the Darwin Economy, is pretty neat. He raps about evolution and economics with Paul Solman for eight minutes here.

  1. Short Robert H. Frank: Tame the supposed Darwin Economy by introducing parasites into the system.

  2. At about eight minutes in Frank and Solman introduce some idiotic false equivalence. Sure it’s a problem, they agree, that the right sees no value in government intervention, but the left doesn’t understand that capitalism can produce value too.
    Is it really too much to ask of “left”-wing economists that they not tar their allies as communists?
