An Economist Gets Lunch: New Rules for Everyday Foodies

Tyler Cowen of George Mason U. and author of An Economist Gets Lunch, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about food, the economics of food, and his new book. In this wide-ranging conversation, Cowen explains why American food was once a wasteland, the environmental impacts of plastic and buying local, why to stay away from fancy restaurants in the central city, and why he spent a month shopping only at an Asian supermarket while living in Northern Virginia.

    I first tried out Econtalk last year as something to fall asleep to (which is ridiculous, it quickly became one of my favorites). Your interview was great. I shop at an Asian supermarket for Asian food but your discussion of them in the podcast inspired me to take more advantage of them. They do have the best prices, especially on the huge variety of “asian” produce (most grown locally). Seattle is really lucky in our supermarket choices.
    I’ll be following this blog. Keep up the good work!
