The Rational Liberal Minister
By Bryan Caplan
I had a stimulating, well-reasoned interview with noted liberal activist and ordained minister Barry Lynn, host of “Culture Shocks.” I continue to be surprised by the bipartisan reaction to my book – has Bush inadvertently opened liberal eyes to the folly of the median voter?
I’m particularly pleased by the end of the interview, when I help Lynn overcome what Arnold calls anti-finance bias. Maybe Barry was just doing his job, but I really got the feeling that if he gave me a semester, I could turn him into one of the best economists on the air.
Too bad his opportunity cost is so high!
