Organizer: Mercatus Center at George Mason University. Attend a special Capitol Hill Campus Course breakfast event featuring Professor Russ Roberts, Professor of Economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.
Russ Roberts is not just an economist, but an innovative communicator of economic knowledge—through novels, commentary on National Public Radio, and more. At this event, Roberts will speak about his new book, The Price of Everything. Believe it or not, The Price of Everything is a novel about economic growth and the unseen forces that create and sustain economic harmony all around us.
Robert's book has been well received by many well-known economists. Best-selling author of The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable, Nassim Nicholas Taleb, said of Russ’s book, “A remarkable use of parables and dialogues to convey economic institutions. This should be mandatory reading for anyone who wants to understand this branch of applied philosophy we call economics.”
Copies of The Price of Everything will be made available at this event and a continental breakfast will be served.
