Cube48 – I Don’t Know : The Truth Many Will Not Say

This cube comes from July 2009, an episode of EconTalk where Russ Roberts talks with Justin Fox. This particular segment focused in on precision & how people react under stress & uncertainty.

Starting Questions:

  1. Are there desired results that you really cannot measure easily or completely?
  2. Do you really want answers or do you want the truth?
  3. Think of someone who tends to say “I don’t know” – what profession is that individual in?

 

Cube39 – Open Trade Solutions

Trade is a basic idea of exchanging something you want to have less for something you wish to have more. Don Boudreaux in a Cato Institute daily podcast presented Trade Deficit Delusions , but the cube today is a little more focused on two topics:

  • should you work on getting more people involved & what happens when you do
  • how Athens became a large city in a short time & what that means to our society

Cube33 – Organizations: Machine or Human

 

This cube features a segment from the EconTalk episode Papola on the Keynes Hayek Rap Videos.

Russ Roberts & John Papola have worked together on EconStories.tv, with two main rap videos:
Round 1: Fear the Boom and Bust
Round 2: Fight of the Century

In this cube, the focus is a problem facing everyone – how we make our lives better? If working through an organized group of people, business or not, the direction tends to either be one like building a robot, or focusing on the building block people.
