The American Economic Association (AEA) takes pride in celebrating its founder Richard T. Ely. This pride is strange, given the character of Elys thought, which is revealed in The Independent Review article The Shaping of a Future Presidents Economic Thought: Richard T. Ely and Woodrow Wilson at The Hopkins by Gary M. Pecquet and Clifford F. Thies, as well as the Econ Journal Watch article Richard T. Ely: The Confederate Flag of the AEA? by Clifford F. Thies and Ryan Daza. In this podcast, Thies is interviewed by the economist Lawrence H. White and explores Elys ideas, values, and impact. Thies is the Eldon R. Lindsay Chair of Free Enterprise and Professor of Economics and Finance at Shenandoah University.
