PODCAST: Prof. Greg Collins on “Commerce and Manners in Edmund Burke’s Political Economy”

The James Wilson Podcast features Prof. Greg Collins of Yale University on his book on Edmund Burke’s economic thought.

Author and Professor Greg Collins joined JWI Deputy Director Garrett Snedeker and intern Chance Cook to discuss his new book, “Commerce and Manner in Edmund Burke’s Political Economy”. Collins’ book explores the intersection of Edmund Burke’s economic thought and views on natural law in light of newly discovered manuscripts and data. Prof. Collins gives a clear picture of Burke’s views on revenue, taxes, trade, and other economic issues. Snedeker, Cook, and Collins discuss different aspects of the book, and why it is important to study Burke’s philosophy.

Greg Collins is a Postdoctoral Associate and Lecturer in the Yale Department of Political Science. He holds a B.A. from UMass Amherst, and an M.A. and Ph.D. from The Catholic University of America.

Commerce and Manners in Edmund Burke’s Political Economy is available for purchase from Cambridge Press here.
