EconTalk Jumps the Shark

Russ Roberts could at least pretend that Amity Shlaes (B.A., English Literature) had written a book related to economics, no matter how badly contrived and poorly researched it was.

But what’s his excuse for this (B.A., English Literature, Penn; MBA Chicago)?

Sadly, it appears he has stopped even pretending to be interested in economics, and has just decided to shill for the cheapest huckster.
