Peter J. Boettke, in a Socratic dialogue, talks about his book Living Economics: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow, on which he recounts his academic and work experiences concerning the teaching of economics, since the day he got interested in this topic.

Boettke approaches subjects as The Austrian School of Economics, principles of economics, economics education, liberalism, income and productivity, wealth and poverty, and comments on how this particular social science affects all human endeavors.

Throughout this activity, Boettke tells stories and anecdotes about figures, such as James M. Buchanan, Don Lavoie, Claude Frédéric Bastiat, Karl Popper, Deirdre N. McCloskey, among others, who play influential roles in this field. He concludes by emphasizing his goal in teaching, which is to inspire students to have a better understanding and passion for economics.
