I had wanted to talk with Glenn Loury ever since I first heard his podcast, The Glenn Show, and last week I got my chance. From listening to this interview I think you'll be able to understand why I consider him to be the finest public intellectual we have. Glenn Loury is the Merton P. Stoltz Professor of the Social Sciences and Professor of Economics at Brown University.
