The Economics of Dallas Buyers Club

Recently a badass film company in Austin, called Emergent Order, asked me to host EconPop: a webseries about finding the economics in popular culture, then making it funny. I have a blast making these, and look forward to finding more.

In our inaugural episode we explore¬†Dallas Buyers Club. It’s no small feat to make AIDS¬†and economics funny–but we found a way.

You can also learn about regulatory capture, opportunity cost, and a random tirade about the Welsh.
