Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) 2019 in New Orleans, March 28-30

As the last stop on a lecture tour at four Southern locations this week, I’m looking forward to participating this afternoon and tomorrow in the PPE 2019 conference.

I hope to both hear about familiar topics from unfamiliar angles, and to hear about new and wonderful things in the intersection of P,P and E.

Here is the whole program, and here are some Friday and Saturday sessions I’m already looking forward to (airline arrivals permitting…):
