Friday Audio – “Jane Austen, Game Theorist”: A New Freakonomics Radio Podcast

Take some time today and head over to the Freakonomics webpage and listen to their discussion with Micheal Chwe.  

“Jane Austen, Game Theorist”: A New Freakonomics Radio Podcast

From the website:

It is an episode about, yes, Jane Austen and game theory. To which you might say … wha?

Okay, a bit more explanation is necessary. Michael Chwe is an associate professor of political science at UCLA whose research centers on game theory and, as he puts it, “its applications to social movements and macroeconomics and violence — and this latest thing is about its applications maybe to literature.”
