In our final episode for the year, Alex McHugh interviews a return guest to the show Nathan Goodman. We focus on Nathan’s recent paper, published with Chris Coyne, “U.S. Border Militarization and Foreign Policy: A Symbiotic Relationship.”
Nathan is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Economics at New York University, affiliated with the Program on the Foundations of the Market Economy. He earned his Ph.D. in economics at George Mason University, where he was a Ph.D. fellow with the Mercatus Center and a Graduate Fellow with the F.A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. Nathan’s research broadly focuses on political economy, applied microeconomics, market process economics, New Institutional Economics, and defense economics. He analyzes how alternative institutional arrangements shape the provision of security.
