Brad DeLong on Slouching Toward Utopia
Back on October 13 we hosted Berkeley University economist (and veteran blogger) Brad DeLong for a Slow Boring Book Club event about his magisterial new book Slouching Toward Utopia: An Economic History of the 20th Century.
The audio of the first half of that event — my conversation with Brad — is available here for your listening pleasure. The audio and transcript for the audience Q&A will be available next week.
We’re sharing the audio, but the transcript below is reserved for subscribers, as is participation in future book club events. So if you’re interested, I would urge you to subscribe — our price of $8/month or $80/year is unchanged since we launched nearly two years ago, which means that in inflation-adjusted terms it’s become quite a bit cheaper!
But there is even better news: students or educators with a .edu address can subscribe at a discounted price, as can government employees. If Slow Boring is relevant to your work, you can
expense it and not worry get together with fellow employees for a discounted small group subscription.
Last but not least, it’s worth emphasizing that your Slow Boring subscription supports two important causes — the GiveWell Top Charities Fund and Stripe Climate carbon removal.
On to the transcript!
