This is the fifth of a series of videos on “Thailand in crisis” that we are producing in conjunction with the Australian National University’s Youtube channel. This episode includes interviews with Professor Peter Warr who discusses the role of economics in the current political crisis, and Professor Andrew Leigh who talks about development economics. There is also a discussion with Andrew Walker focused on agricultural credit and the importance of economics for anthropologists. The podcast of this episode is available here.
