The (In)visible Hand (Guest: Matthew Hennessey)

May 23, 2022

In Episode 72 of Ill Literacy, Tim Benson talks with Matthew Hennessey, author of “Visible Hand: A Wealth of Notions on the Miracle of the Market.”

Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by Matthew Hennessey of the Wall Street Journal to discuss his new book, Visible Hand: A Wealth of Notions on the Miracle of the Market. They discuss why a new book explaining the beauty of the free market to people who normally blanche at all things economics was needed, detour into some Jersey inside baseball, and chat about a very valuable life lesson Hennessey learned in middle school from his science teacher.
