Econ Duel

Economics can explain many of life’s big questions. Problem is, it can sometimes provide multiple, even conflicting, answers. So which answers are the “right” ones? There’s only one way to find out: Econ Duel!

In this fun video series from Marginal Revolution University, you’ll have a chance to hear from leading economics experts as they debate the big questions discussed in the news, in our schools, and around the dinner table.

We kick off the series with a debate over the question: Is education really about learning or more about signaling? 

You can listen to the entire Econ Duel series on SoundCloud, iTunes, or Stitcher.
