Socratic Dialogue about Manuel F. Ayau’s Work

New Media  | 03 de mayo de 2012  | Vistas: 7

Peter J. Boettke leads a Socratic dialogue about the published work of Manuel F. Ayau, remarking the high educational standards that Universidad Francisco Marroquín holds because of his efforts to teach about the importance of education.

Boettke raises questions for this dialogue based on the book Not a Zero-Sum Game and the participants discuss subjects such as the inquiry about the foundation of society and nature of economic relationships, the interest of people in economics, poverty and opportunity.

During the dialogue, the participants gave their opinion about the understanding of laws, rights and ethics, the law of comparative advantage, spontaneous order, but especially about the efficiency of Manuel F. Ayau to communicate his ideas, and mainly, the way he taught economics.
