Elinor Ostrom is best known for her work on common pool resources, but, on this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, we take a deeper dive into her work as Bobbi Herzberg interviews Vlad Tarko on Elinor Ostrom's role as an intellectual. Learn why students of Elinor Ostrom should start with her work on polycentrism and metropolitan governance, discover the ways in which the Ostroms dealt with skepticism about their work, and understand why Elinor Ostrom was selected for the Nobel Prize in Economics as we continue the Hayek Program's celebration of her life and work.
