All new episode! Click to share: http://ctt.ec/UbDpE In this episode of EconPop, Andrew discusses Ivan Reitman's classic paranormal comedy Ghostbusters. Subjects include entrepreneurship, subjective value, regulatory interference, and ectoplasm! EconPop is the YouTube series that sifts through the haystack of popular culture to find the needle of economics within... and then stabs you with it! Starring comedian Andrew Heaton, EconPop takes a surprisingly deep look at the economic themes running through classic films, new releases, tv shows and more rom the best of pop culture and entertainment. Heaton brings a unique mix of dry wit and whimsy to bear on the dismal science of economics and the result is always entertaining, educational and irreverent. It's Econ 101 meets At The Movies, with a dash of Monty Python.
