Exploring Economic Sociology - Peter Boettke & Jordan Lofthouse

On this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, we continue a series of lectures on topics in economic sociology hosted by Peter Boettke. He is joined in this episode by Jordan Lofthouse as they discuss his research into the institutions of Native American reservations. Lofthouse also explains his academic background in geography and how a paper by James Buchanan ultimately sparked a change in his views on political economy. Additionally, the pair discuss the challenges of doing fieldwork in economics, the explanatory power of fieldwork, and how individuals can effectively communicate their findings in academic contexts.
