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.
