Pourquoi les riches sont riches et les pauvres sont pauvres

Conférencier: Tim Harford
Vidéo: 53 minutes

Tim Harford, a columnist at the Financial Times in London, discussed his recent book "The Undercover Economist: Exposing Why the Rich are Rich, the Poor are Poor – and Why You Can Never Buy a Decent Used Car!" in a program sponsored by the Science, Technology and Business Division.

Harford is noted for his ability to relate the principles of economics to everyday life in a clear and entertaining style. The Undercover Economist takes up such issues as "who really makes money from fair trade coffee, why beer and fries are linked to globalization and how the Mafia makes money from laundries when street gangs pushing drugs don't."
