My podcast on macro and monetary policy

It is with Russ Roberts and it covers the roots of our current crisis, why things are far more troublesome than most people expected (and that is the really tough question; real estate bubbles have burst before), why monetary policy matters at all, the tricky balancing act played by the Fed, why a gold standard isn’t the answer, and many other macroeconomic topics.  My core attitude, in case you don’t already know it, is that monetary policy is both an art and a science and there are no secret ways of getting it right, understood by only a few.  The podcast is here

Addendum: Arnold Kling summarizes.
