Exploring Economic Sociology — Peter Boettke & Stefanie Haeffele

On this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, we continue a series of lectures on topics in economic sociology, recorded in the fall academic semester of 2020 and hosted by Peter Boettke. He is joined in this episode by Stefanie Haeffele as they cover issues of community revival in the wake of disasters. As part of the conversation, Stefanie shares her story of growing into an academic career in economics and reflects on how her experience in the Presidential Management Fellowship shaped her insights on government bureaucracy. Later in the podcast, the pair discuss the importance of building trust within local communities during disaster research, and how to work in such contexts as social scientists with a sense of humanity and care.
