On this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, Peter Boettke sits down with Sandra Peart to tackle a host of topics, beginning with an investigation into balancing the tension between leadership and scholarship in academia. Later in the podcast, the pair discuss several of the great economic thinkers and their insights, with specific emphasis on the question of why economic insights seemed to "flatten out" between J.S. Mill and Frank Knight. Finally, Peter Boettke and Sandra Peart share their stories and experiences in archival research.
