This afternoon I joined NYU’s William Easterly, Ingrid Kvangraven of the New School and Daniel Kaufmann of Revenue Watch to talk about Easterly’s new book, The Tyranny of Experts. You will notice that I am a huge fan of STATE CAPACITY.

Note: If you are in the US you have to VPN it since al jazeera doesn’t stream content in the US.
In preparation for the show I finally finished reading Easterly’s book. A review is coming soon (grad school permitting).
