In the second of a three-part series on academia and libertarianism, Peter Boettke and David Prychitko reflect on the opportunities they had in graduate school and their early academic careers. During the conversation, David Prychitko recalls the value he found in having economics communicated in terms of reconciled plans, and Peter Boettke reflects on the unique opportunity he and others had in having access to so much economic talent during their graduate work. Later in the podcast, the conversation turns towards Prychitko's time in Yugoslavia and his experience while living there.
