A Social-Status Rationale for Repugnant and Protected Market Transactions
The Spring 2021 FC Talks series is dedicated to our late colleague, Patrick Harless. Patrick Harless was an economist who joined the Freedom Center in 2018. He was a dedicated educator who, although his work was highly technical, was able to teach economic topics all levels of students. This memorial series brings together talks by Harless's former PhD advisor, his co-authors, and our own faculty.
Romans Pancs is an Associate Professor of Economics at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México. He is the author of Lectures on Microeconomics: The Big Questions Approach (MIT Press). With Patrick, he co-authored "A Review of Robert Sugden's Community of Advantage" (Journal of Economic Literature, forthcoming) as well as "A Social-Status Rationale for Repugnant and Protected Market Transactions," the latter of which will provide the basis for his FC Talk.
This talk will be hosted on Zoom by Lucy Schwarz. Please contact Lucy for details if you are interested in attending or if you wish to be added to our listserv.
