The Well-Read Investor

Episode 3: Joshua Gans

Award-winning economist, author, and professor, Joshua Gans and Investor Mike Hanson examine the economics of Artificial Intelligence.

In Episode 3 we continue our mini-theme on Artificial Intelligence with award-winning economist and professor Joshua Gans, speaking about his book Prediction Machines: the simple economics of Artificial Intelligence, co-written with professors, Ajay Agrawal and Avi Goldfarb. This is an expansive career that features several books, numerous publications and awards. Aside from all the books and accolades, we think you'll find professor Gans, not only a great mind, but a gregarious one as well. This interview was conducted just before the COVID-19 pandemic gripped the world. On that note, you may want to check out professor Gans newest, short, but thoughtful and very timely book, Economics In the age of COVID-19 published by the MIT press, available on digital and audio.
