James O’Loghlin had me on his Sunday night show which was broadcast on ABC local radio tonight. In fact it would have been, but because of the cricket only went out via live feed on the net. Anyway, it was quite a long interview – went for 20 odd minutes so we got through quite a lot of stuff about the history of the car industry and car industry policy. I posted my latest column on it here.
If you have the time I hope you will find it quite interesting as an application of ‘lateral economics’, which is to say economics using thoroughly traditional ideas, but with an eye to ways of using them that deviate from current obsessions – not that easy given the obsessiveness with which free trade is debated by economists and others. The podcast is here.
