Who decides what you eat?


How much do diet and food experts truly know? Why can making decisions on behalf of others be so problematic?

On April 29, 2014, Big Ideas Live! host Janet Neilson joined guest Dr. Steve Horwitz on Tuesday to discuss these issues.




Check out the materials below to learn: 

  • Why it's so hard to make decisions for others - or have them made for you 

  • How to think about your limits when considering new problems 

  • The practical implications of realizing everyone knows a little bit




This event was based on the topic of the knowledge problem. If you'd like to learn more, check out FEE's learning module on the knowledge problem.
