Santa, Scrooge and Economics

Dec 23, 2011

Twas the last show before Christmas and we’re visiting Santa, Scrooge...and an economist.

We’re digging into the Where We Live archive for some of our favorite interviews from previous Decembers.

The holiday season is what many retailers look forward to. Consumers head out or log-on in hopes of finding the perfect present for friends and family. But we’ll hear from an economist who proposes a different idea and he calls it, Scroogenomics.

And speaking of Scrooge, we’ll hear from two people who have portrayed the Dickens’ character on stage and a professor who is a scholar and expert on A Christmas Carol.

Finally, we’ll leave you with a conversation with the dean of one of the world’s leading schools for Santa Claus.
