You’ve just tuned in to the Daily Beat!

This week on the Daily Beat: We speak with Evie Adomait, Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada about discussing economics with friends and family, making it digestible for students and readers, and some basic economic lessons.

Evie Adomait is the co-author of “Cocktail Party Economics: The Big Ideas and Scintillating Small Talk about Markets” and “Dinner Party Economics: The Big Ideas and Intense Conversations about the Economy.”

Today on the Daily Beat, Monday, November 7, 2016: Evie Adomait talks about why discussions about economics tend to get so emotional, and the difficulty in making such a dense subject interesting to readers and students.
