cowenThis week on The Marketplace of Ideas, Colin Marshall talks to Tyler Cowen, professor of economics at George Mason University and co-blogger, with Alex Tabarrok, at the immensely popular economics and culture blog Marginal Revolution. Cowen’s new book is Create Your Own Economy: The Path to Prosperity in a Disordered World, a treatise on the optimal strategies for navigating the world of small bits of data and continuously-flowing information streams in which we find ourselves and the surprising advantages of autistic cognitive qualities in such a world.

The Marketplace of Ideas airs every Thursday at noon.
