Wealth of Nations Podcast

A Science and Social Sciences podcast
 1 person rated this podcast
The Wealth of Nations is a podcast about the causes of global development and underdevelopment. Why is the average income of an American almost a hundred times greater than that of the average person in the Central African Republic? Why do people still die of tuberculosis, malaria and yaws, diseases that were eradicated decades ago in the US? Why are two thirds of the people in Niger and South Sudan illiterate? I hope to examine the historical, political and economic forces at the root of these questions in this podcast.

Creators & Guests

We don't know anything about the creators of this podcast yet. You can add them yourself so they can be credited for this and other podcasts.

There aren't a lot of podcasts that actually explain international topics beyond the headlines. This podcast goes in depth into international political and economic development in a way that's both informative but still very accessible. I learn something new every episode!
