When I saw Bob Murphy give this talk, I knew right away this excerpt about the Washington Post‘s Ezra Klein needed to be a YouTube unto itself. That our society considers Klein and Matt Yglesias to have a lot of valuable things to say reflects where things stand right now, and how much work remains to be done. I would be embarrassed if I were Ezra Klein, but if I were Ezra Klein I bet it would take a lot to embarrass me.
Watch Bob at work. It gets fun around 4:00.
