IM chat with Reason magazine and Nick Gillespie

Here is the link.  The chat covered how economists should think about incentives, the proper scope of libertarianism, my book as "economics for the emotional," whether I have ever visited a prostitute, Natasha’s biggest self-deception about me, underrated and overrated economists, and why New Jersey has produced so many libertarians.

Here is one excerpt:

reason (8:40:58 AM): …what’s the inner economist’s most important message to congress (briefly)?

Cowen (8:42:17 AM): Humility would be a good start. Cut spending is another. Worry about nuclear proliferation. Institute greater accountability.
