This week is the July edition of Incentives & Instincts, a recurring series in which Justin speaks with economist and friend Bryce Ward about some of the broader challenges facing our society. This week the two discuss some of the more encouraging signals in the economy.
They cover declines in violent crime, inflation and increases in labor force participation rates over the last year or so. Justin and Bryce also dig into a recent study which found people across the world tend to believe things used to be better in the past and discuss why this might be and why that idea isn't actually accurate.
