Tyler Cowen on Reason.TV

August 20, 2009

Matt Welch of Reason.TV sat down with Tyler Cowen to discuss his latest book, Create Your Own Economy:

Cowen, one of the country’s foremost defenders of free markets and international exchange, sees his book as an ode to the power of the individual, “and how we can all create our own liberties essentially by using the web and the information economy to create streams of meaning.” In the interview, he talks about how society is becoming more autistic (“this is a good thing!”), how everyday people can be happier than Bill Gates, and why he’s fearful of Barack Obama’s economics. “On fiscal policy,” he warns, “we are absolutely heading off a cliff.”
