On this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, we'll hear part two of Peter Boettke's interview with David Levy and Sandra Peart on their latest book, Towards an Economics of Natural Equals: A Documentary History of the Early Virginia School. As they conclude their interview, Levy and Peart discuss the issue of replication in archival research and how their scholarship is disciplined to avoid the pitfalls associated with it. They also consider the application of contemporary normative standards to historical moments and address how responsible a scholar is for the use of their ideas once they produce them.
