D. G. Myers on Cancer, Dying, and Living @ EconTalk

I highly recommend this recent EconTalk interview with literary critic D.G. Myers. Here’s the summary:

D.G. Myers, literary critic and cancer patient, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the lessons he has learned from receiving a cancer diagnosis six years ago. Myers emphasizes the importance of dealing with cancer honestly and using it as a way to focus attention on what matters in life. The conversation illuminates the essence of opportunity cost and the importance of allocating our time, perhaps our scarcest resource, wisely. The last part of the conversation discusses a number of literary issues including the role of English literature and creative writing in American universities.

Thank you Russ Roberts and D.G. for engaging in and sharing this wonderful conversation.
