Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gary Becker is one of the most original and pathbreaking economists in recent times. When he was named the 1992 Nobel Laureate in Economics, it was for "having extended the domain of microeconomic analysis to a wide range of human behaviour and interaction, including nonmarket behaviour." Becker's work led directly to the development of "human capital" theory and the economic analysis of discrimination, crime and punishment, marriage and the family, and the formation of habits. His studies have yielded fresh perspectives on the central problems in these areas, as well as new approaches to solving those problems. Becker is the University Professor of Economics and Sociology at the University of Chicago, and the Rose-Marie and Jack R. Anderson Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution.

Interviewer Edward L. Glaeser is Professor of Economics at Harvard University, where he specializes in urban and social economics, law and economics, and microeconomic theory. He is the editor of the Quarterly Journal of Economics.

Interviewer Judge Richard A. Posner serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, where he was the chief judge of the court from 1993 to 2000. He is also a Senior Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago Law School.

Interviewer Edward Lazear is Jack Steele Parker Professor of Human Resources and Management Economics at Stanford University, and the Morris A. Cox Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution.

Program Length: 90 minutes.
