Ep. 76: What is a Public Good?
In this week's podcast we're talking about public goods. What are they? Are firefighters a public good? Is healthcare a public good? Public transportation? In particular, we're looking at a recent piece in the Boston Review by K. Sabeel Rahman and then looking at some other stories in the news that were relevant to this idea.
