Note:  Due to some technical difficulties, some listeners may not have been able to hear this last Wednesday, so we are running this show one more week.  On March 18, 2012, I uploaded a post entitled “Democratic Decisions” to my blog Persistent Wondering. Prof. Jerry Friedman, who was on FSU-Radio early in  January, 2012 talking about “Occupy Economics”, read my post and emailed me to say he really liked it. “Excellent post on a critical issue!” he said. “Our argument for socialism and social regulation over markets eventually becomes a choice among imperfect alternatives where we argue that democratic governance is better than individual choice through markets. Maybe you want to do a radio on this with a discussion of democratic theories going back to Aristotle, de Tocqueville, Mill, et al?” I replied that I’d read a little Mill and Aristotle, but no de Tocqueville, but that I’d love to do a show on this subject. Because Jerry is a U. Mass. professor, and busy, it took a while to schedule, but we did it on  5/16/2012.

This rebroadcast continues our 2013 retrospective of 2012 programs.
