History happens. Economics is a fabrication. The intersection between them is the space in which public policy and prospects emerge. Our guest, author, and historical scholar Matthew Ehret, Ehret has studied the deep historical dynamics that underpinned the development of some of the primary economic views of our day such as Hayek’s Austrian austerity and Keynes’ systemic generosity.
