The economics of the zombie apocalypse

New CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Company) radio show called “The Invisible Hand” focuses on economics. From the site:

Every choice we make in life can be seen as an economic choice. We have limited time, limited money and limited information. Every day, we parcel out these scarce resources in a never-ending series of choices.

Philosopher Adam Smith gets the cred for our title. He theorized that if people made choices with their own economic self-interests in mind, then a collective force would guide the marketplace to benefit the common good. This force…was like an invisible hand.

On the show we explore whether ideas like that–ones found in the pages of an Economic text book–can also be found at work in the real-life stories of the world today.

This week, host Matthew Lazin-Ryder explores the economics of the zombie apocalypse.

Thanks to DotWer Jolaine Incognito for the tip!
