Last month, we hosted a Virtual Reading Group on Virginia Postrel’s New book, The Fabric of CivilizationCaren Oberg, an historian of fashion, led our discussion. (Postrel was also recently a guest on EconTalk.)

Over the course of the VRG, participants were encouraged to think of questions to ask Postrel; this interview with Oberg was the result:

Many of our participants suggested another VRG based on Postrel’s earlier book, The Future and its Enemies. Let us know if you share that interest, and we’ll see if we can get it scheduled.

Our next VRG will be led by EconLog’s Alberto Mingardi on Karl Popper’s The Open Society and its Enemies, starting April 19. Consider joining us!
