In this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, Peter Boettke and Stefanie Haeffele share a conversation on the current trilogy of books in the Hayek Program's "Tensions in Political Economy" book series, The pair cover a number of topics, including what was the driving idea behind the series, as well as the logic behind examining the tensions in the scholars of one's own intellectual tradition. Later in the podcast, we'll hear about the importance of contestation in the realm of ideas, and why the focus of a series like the "Tensions" one should be on fostering an ever-growing conversation rather than achieving a final intellectual stopping point.
