In the mid-1960s, the University of Virginia had an impressive economics department with scholars such as James Buchanan, Gordon Tullock, Ronald Coase, Leland Yeager, and G. Warren Nutter. In 1963, Richard Wagner began his PhD in economics at UVA. What exactly led Richard Wagner to UVA for his graduate studies? What was it like to take classes and work with these notable scholars? Hayek Program scholar Richard Wagner discusses all of this and more with colleague Donald Boudreaux on this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast.
