In this video, Liberty Fund presents a series of three conversations with Gary S. Becker, renowned economist, Nobel Memorial Price recipient, and key pioneer in the adaptation of economic principles to the concern of world affairs. In the first conversation, Becker and Harvard professor Edward Glaeser discuss the evolving nature of the economic profession, and his pivotal role in broadening the field to several aspects of life. In the second conversation, Becker and Judge Richard A. Posner examine the ongoing relationship between law and economics, exploring the challenges of placing crime and punishment within an economic framework. In the third conversation, Stanford professor Edward Lazear questions Becker about understanding the nature of human capital and its relationship to education. Becker shares crucial insights on the economic assessment of the role of family as the fundamental social unit. In only three discussions, Becker summarizes the concepts that lead him to spearhead the movement towards a new way of learning and applying economics.
