#355 What Superheroes Know About Economics - J. Brian O'Roark

What Superheroes Know About Economics - J. Brian O'Roark

Smithsonian Associates, Inside Science & Technology Interview Series

Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates Inside Science Series, I’m Paul Vogelzang and this is episode #355.

As part of our Smithsonian Associates Inside Science & Technology series, we are joined today by author, professor, and superhero educator, Dr. J. Brian O’ Roark. Dr. O’Roark is a superhero educator, professor of economics, a tough subject to teach, known as the dismal science. Like many of you, I took my fair share of economics classes and had I been offered a class like this…well, let’s just say it would not have been “The Dismal Science” any longer.

You will love our conversation, and presentation, by Dr. J. Brian O’Roark, who will change the entire subject of economics when he appears at the Smithsonian Associates, June 6, 2019, and his presentation is entitled, What Superheroes Know About Economics. Dr. O’Roark’s presentation at the Smithsonian Associates will draw from his excellent new book, Why Superman Doesn't Take Over The World What Superheroes Can Tell Us About Economics.
