Multiplikatorer | Valerie Ramey snakker økt G og Nobelvinnere

Det er ikke mange økonomi-podcaster der ute, men en som er verdt å følge fra tid til annen er EconTalk. Denne uken er det Valerie Ramey, UCSD (Go Tritons!), som snakker om finanspolitikk, multiplikatorer og Nobelvinnere Sargent og Sims.

(Forresten, de to siste podcastene fra EconTalk var om Keynes vs. Hayek og inntektsulikhet)

Robert Townsend om mikrokreditt, uformell sparing i Thailand og risikohåndtering i fattige land.

Dette er fra den siste podcasten til EconTalk:

Townsend on Development, Poverty, and Financial Institutions: «Robert Townsend of MIT and the Consortium on Financial Systems and Poverty talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about development and the role of financial institutions in growth. Drawing on his research, particularly his surveys of households in Thailand, Townsend argues that both informal networks and arrangements and formal financial institutions play important roles in dealing with risk. Along the way, he discusses the role of microfinance in poor countries and the potential for better financial arrangements to lead to higher growth and the accumulation of wealth.»
