Season 5, Episode 13
On this week’s episode of Freakonomics Radio:

And then, hear our interview with the physician/anthropologist Jim Yong Kim. He used to advocate dismantling the World Bank; now he’s running it — and is eager to apply the insights of behavioral economics to development policy.
To learn more, check out the podcasts from which this hour was drawn: “How Can Tiny Norway Afford to Buy So Many Teslas?” and “Hacking the World Bank.”
