About This List

"Get the money / Dollar, dollar bill, y'all"
  1. What would the perfect immigration system look like? We ask three economists and get three very different answers. (None of which include building a wall.)
  2. There is a mystery in many poor countries. Why don't farmers specialize and grow more food? Two economists with very different theories go head to head to find out.
  3. Note: Today's show is a rerun. It originally ran in January 2014. For most of U.S. history, there was no minimum wage. A few times, politicians passed laws tiptoeing toward a minimum. But the Supreme Court struck those laws down. On today's show: how the U.S. finally got a minimum wage. It's a story of exploding bakeries, a blue eagle, and a guy who may or may not have been drunk. For more: http://n.pr/16U53ZW
  4. Today on the show: How a cheese cartel abandoned the rules of economics and convinced the world to eat fondue.
  5. Once a year, teenagers from across the country team up and compete to run the U.S. Federal Reserve.
  6. Capitalism isn't supposed to exist in North Korea. But all over the country, small businesses are popping up, growing the nation's economy. And much of that money is going straight to the country's nuclear program.
