In this episode we welcome blogger, scholar and mother of two, Econ Mom, to Barbarian Noetics. We discuss the (heroic!) challenges of juggling the Herculean task of earning a PhD in Economics with the equally daunting job of being a full-time mother of two. We also brainstorm ways in which our society could utilize its current model of free market capitalism to assist working parents and single moms, by incentivising childcare-related benefit programs. Econ Mom also shares a recent wacky jury duty story.
