The Foundation for Economic Education proudly presents the inaugural episode of our new weekly show FEEcast, a lively and intelligent exploration of today’s most interesting stories and issues through the clarifying lens of economic thinking. In this episode, Richard Lorenc, Brittany Hunter, Dan Sanchez, and Marianne March discuss taxes (IRS.gov had a tax day meltdown!), wealth (#IdLikeToBeRichEnoughTo is trending on Twitter), and what made human prosperity, after millions of years of stagnation, skyrocket in recent history.
