Robert H. Frank is a Professor of Management and Economics at Cornell University, Economic View columnist for the New York Times, and the author of many books, including his latest, Under the Influence: Putting Peer Pressure to Work.
In this podcast episode, Robert sheds light on what this current crisis reveals about our economic inequities; why it's important to distinguish between absolute and relative poverty, as well as absolute and relative wealth; how we can leverage the power of peer pressure in our favor to get the changes we wish to create; and more.
