NPR plays overrated vs. underrated with Banerjee and Duflo

Cardiff Garcia led the charge, along with Stacey Vanek Smith, here is one excerpt:

GARCIA: Overrated or underrated – being married to an economist.

BANERJEE: Underrated.

(LAUGHTER)

BANERJEE: Excellent.

DUFLO: Underrated, of course.

SMITH: (Laughter). What about overrated/underrated – dating an economist?

BANERJEE: I mean, if you’re married to one (laughter) overrated.

SMITH: I mean, did you guys, like, split checks? Or, like, how did that work? Did you run into any economic quandaries early on?

BANERJEE: We were pretty flexible. We’re not really money people, so we didn’t – never spent a minute thinking about it.

Here is the full program.  For the pointer I thank Michelle Dawson.
