A conversation about spending and the holidays, and why maybe we shouldn't do it! We'll meet the author of Scroogenomics: Why You Shouldn't Buy Presents For The Holidays and hear his theories on why some giving during the holidays is clearly wasteful and actually damages our economy. Join us as we discuss, and even quantify, satisfaction in gift giving and a reprioritization of our gift giving habits.

Guest

Joel Waldfogel - Author of Scroogenomics and Economist, Professor and Chair of Business and Public Policy at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania
