Economically Speaking: Government Regulation
Produced and Telecast by PBS in 1978, this is one of the rare TV appearances of Nobel Prize winner George Stigler. Also appearing on this half hour production is a young Mark Green, near the beginning of his career as a consumer advocate. Their discussion is moderated by Marina von Neumann Whitman, then a Professor of Economics at the University of Pittsburgh. Until 2002 it was thought no recording of this program existed, until found in a stack of poorly labeled film copies of the "Economically Speaking" series.
