Skywalking Network Present Star Warsologies #16: Economics

  • by

This time we examine various aspects of economics in the galaxy far, far away with not one, but two economists, Alex Parret, PhD (econometrics), and Elizabeth Molly Maloney, PhD candidate (microeconomics and labor market discrimination). How does the galactic economy work? Can you hide the money trail on a project as big as the Death Star? Will Republic credits do fine in the Outer Rim or do you need a better currency? And the big question everyone is dying to know the answer to: can you explain the taxation of trade routes in outlying systems! Check out this episode on Star Wars & economics and find out!

In Star Warsologies, hosts James Floyd and Melissa Miller combine their love of Star Wars with their keen interest in all things academic by asking experts about how their field is represented in a galaxy far, far away. It’s a monthly podcast about science and Star Wars!
